Have you tried posting in the Southeast regional / local forum? I believe member Ryannel2003 is somehow affiliated with a shop in eastern NC (New Bern, I think).

It may be too far away for you, but there is a guy in Louisvill KY, Mike Lawson that does head gasket jobs for a really reasonable price. He uses the NS300L inserts and swears buy them. Do a search with "louisville" on this site. Also try "NS300L" on ebay.
