  1. Probably a stupid question, but.... you still need to keep the clear lens wing tip covers, even if you install the Whalen 650s, right?
  2. I should clarify, the price includes installation on new EDM 900 plus new panels.
  3. Since half the part are needed for the G3X and the other half for for the GFC 500, aren’t they part of each package? If so, should they be included in the price of the main item that requires them for the install, or is each one priced separately? Overall price for this was approx 37K, sound right?
  4. I asked an avionics shop for an estimate to install a G3X and the GFC 500, they came back with the below requirements. can you all fill me in on all this so I’m not to clueless when I go speak to them. I read as much as I can, but still fuzzy about it all.
  5. Very nice! Where did you get all the work done, and who cut the panel?
  6. St, Clair County airport in Pell City Alabama. Ricky Gilmore, he worked at an MSC for more than thirty years. Oldguy, on MS, told me about him. There are three Monies on the field and another three within 50 miles that he takes care of. I have been doing just about everything, with his guidance/supervision. Great experience. He also was not concerned about the low compression numbers, reiterated some of the stuff that has already been said. So far so good, if I get the baffels go material that I ordered yesterday from Spruce, I should be done tomorrow.
  7. The check was done about three hours after shut down. I’ll have him do another once the annual is done and we take it around the pattern a couple of times. Thanks for putting my mind at ease, at least somewhat.
  8. Correction he only took the top plugs out, not the bottom.
  9. Not the same guy. He took all the spark plugs out and then check the pressure via the top plugs.
  10. I have a 1997 M20J and during last years annual all the cylinder compression were in the high seventy. During this years annual three are in the high sixties and one in low sevenths.1600hrs on engine. What could have caused this?
  11. Very nice, congratulations!
  12. Where is the list of airplanes that are covered?
  13. Does anyone know of a reputable shop that allows for owner assist annuals near 54J, DeFuniak Springs FL? I have a shop close to Birmingham AL, but that is a bit far.
  14. Congrats! I still remember the day I got my ticket.
