Film Camera Restore Question

I have an old Canon AE-1 Program, and I would like to get it cleaned up. I'm not saying anythings wrong with it, but I would like it to have a good one over. Any suggestions on where to send it, or should I go find a shop near me.

What you want is a CLA (cleaning, lubrication, adjustment). There are several online places that can handle it.

Good deal. I may hit up some local place before I check out online, to save me the trouble of shipping. Can some of this be done by me, like is there anything that someone with simple mechanical knowledge could do?

There is stuff you can do, but I wouldn't recommend it. The inside of a manual camera looks like clockwork.

My local place (mikes, if oyuve heard of it) did a very good job cleaning and adjuting my AE-1.

Local may be better.

And that reminds me, I still have 10 rolls that are yet to be developed.
