Canon P shutter repair?

Since I know that Pentax fans also use other cameras, perhaps the rangefinder fans have some suggestions for me.

I have a Canon P, along with the everready case, the 50mm f1.8, 35mm f1.8, and the 100mm f2. All are in very good to excellent condition. However...the stainless steel shutter is wrinkled, although that has caused no problems; many sources say wrinkles are common and typically cause no problems.
My shutter has begun to "hang" at speeds 1/8 second and slower, freeing up only after some exercise. Can anyone suggest a good source of a CLA for this lovely old warrior?

Many thanks,

George Hazelton

I go to Mike at for servicing my non-Pentax cameras.
