starting over

Hi everybody!
So I haven't made a film film in a long time.
The last stuff I worked on was optical printing onto printstock and then showing/projecting
the printstock.

I would like to start where I left off, but:

there are no optical printers in san francisco anymore,
and the local lab (Monaco) doesn't process film stock anymore.

So what would you suggest is the best way to stay on the path visually, but maybe achieved
by a different means?

I would like to continue working with the images that were the last I worked with, it was a cool little
film that I didn't get to finish.

Here is what I have:

I own a contact printer, it is a very rare table top model.
I am not opposed to buckety hand processing, either in my basement or bathroom.

So what would you do? where would you begin to start over?

Any thoughts, ideas or opinions greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
