There is a list of reputable builders somewhere. I think Pettit Racing and Maztech are on there, not sure if there are others in Florida.

Google search showed Maztech "Permanently closed".

An alternative to a rebuild...

Shipping is ridiculous but you might be able to get them to waive it if Bradenton isn't too far of a hike for you to go pick it up. Won't hurt to give them a call.
