Machine Shop?!?

I need to resurface my cylinder head. Anyone know of a good shop in the greater Little Rock area.

If anyone has done this before... will I have to take all the exhaust manifolds and such. I was able to clean it and work on it with all that on, but I'm worried that will add another crap load of work and gaskets to replace. Might just take it to a shop who will do that all for me!

The head will need to be a bare casting to get surfaced. Than means not only do the manifolds need to come off, but also the valve train.

Old_Crow is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I use a place in Heber Springs, but Scott's right about the head having to be bare.
