  1. Ouch, did this happen at an FBO?
  2. Replace the KX-170B with something else slimmer, like an SL-30, move whatever is below it to the space now occupied by the ADF, remove that as well. Insert 540.
  3. Try @Bob_Belville, he lives in Morganton which isn't too far from Charlotte. He has an E which is a short body, meaning it has the least back seat room of all types of Mooneys.
  4. I always laugh when I see those estimates as well. It might take that long if the engine was already in their factory on a stand, not covered by cowlings, baffling, and accessories....
  5. Really happy I finished my overhaul in September of 2015!
  6. Per garmins website Leverages certificated G5 electronic flight instrument1 for primary attitude reference — plus input and display of altitude preselect, heading, vertical speed, airspeed target and flight director cues
  7. the S gives you baro information. Not worth it in my opinion.
  8. Oops, you're right Lance, I think I meant Software version 7, not 5. It's been a few years since I installed/updated a G500 system. I went to Garmin Dealer training a few years back and that is when they mentioned it was the last major revision.
  9. I'm going with G500 replacement, it has been about 2 years since their last major software version update for the 500/600 (5.0), and I know from Garmin there were no plans to go any further with G500 software.
  10. That really doesn't look that bad, post more pictures of the wing so we can see other affected areas. The picture you posted is of the Upper Spar Splice plate. The parts are about $300 from Mooney and it can be replaced in about a day or two. The splice plate on my airplane looked way worse than yours, probably from people spilling crap on it over the years.
  11. Hey Seth, I am planning to be at Oshkosh Wed-Friday, hope to see you there! Congratulations on the birth of your son!
  12. Let's be honest though, the Cirrus sells because it has a chute, a ,modern clean sheet design, and a marketing team that knows how to sell airplanes. I think cabin width is the not a huge seller for them. I am personally more comfortable in my mooney width wise than a Bonanza, but yes a Cirrus is wider.
  13. Main bearings
  14. Try @Alan Fox, he usually has a lot of that type of stuff.
