  1. Ok, i have wanted to stay out of this discussion as it is not my place to say what Joe should or should not be charging? I will say this his work is second to none. My paint job is simply tremendous, the plane looks brand new? Joe simply charged too little 2 years ago. That being said, I also had some other business arrangements with him that also effected the cost. Still, I would have paid 14k if that was the price? He has took on a much larger shop and he is trying to become bigger. I know also that the cost of paint and the disposal of the chemicals has increased significantly
  2. I really don’t remember that is terrible. It was like just under 90k. I have put 90 or so more into it like i references in the video. I have done the following; 1) New Paint 2) All new panel (Aspen 2500, Garmin 750, JPI 900, Garmin G5, remote Garmin GTX 345 transponder, PS Audiio panel, FS510 tied to the iPad you see in the pics. Then new custom cut panel to house all of it. 3) Speed brakes 4) Landing gear donuts 5) new glass all around 6) 1 piece belly panel 7) zéro timed engine (aero mark in Ft. Lauderdale) 8) new prop 9) gami injectors
  3. Hey guys, Probabably not the correct place to put this. but I am involved with a small flight school at KMKY and we are in need of a “young” CFI looking to build time. The pay is very competitive and we have multiple aircraft. If anyone knows a person that would fit the profile please let me know. Marco Island is a great place to build time as a CFI. Thanks! Mike
  4. Let me know when your here. Wingsouth is 4 Miles from APF.
  5. Yes I am on MS and have been for awhile The annual costs i “guessed” did include the fact that i have redone just about everything on the Plane. They are working on a video of a more “average” Mooney also. The intent was to show what you could do. Anyways, I enjoyed the process and it has been fun with 133DB. The spinner is clean by the way now lol
  6. Guys, Adam from the “pre buy” guys had asked me to do this video a few months back. I wanted to post the video here for you all to see. I think he did a great job putting this together! Mike
  7. I would love the yoke trim switch that goes to fen KAP 150 in my 1982 J? Also looking for right side brakes for the same 82’J thanks!
  8. This is so on the money. I also learned to fly steam 35 years ago. I am all in on the argument that the 750/650/440 versus 530/430 is not all that much of a difference. I own a 750 and train my students on a 430. Like them both. But when it comes to PFD/MFD (I have 3 aspens and a G5), there is simply no comparison to the steam it replaced. I never found the tapes hard to read? Guess that is just me? But information and scan in hard IFR is 10000000000000000% easier. Guess I am a 56 year old millineal now lol
  9. J.D. and Laura are the greatest. Please say hi for me. He has helped me so much. Can’t wait to see your prototype!
  10. @N601RX, would you mind sending me the paper work? Thanks so much! Mike
  11. Bennett, You and I think so much alike. I bought 133DB for $95k almost 5 years ago. First I started working on the airframe to make sure it was perfect. I then added a GTN 750, 1 tube aspen, and a JPI830 (this was a mistake on my part as I ended up wanting primary and had to put in the JPI900). Then I zero timed my engine at Airmark in Ft. Lauderdale. Now I bought the plane with really nice interior (no quite as nice as yours, but for sure 8 or 9 out of 10). Then came a 1 piece belly, new landing gear pucks, new glass throughout. The. I had a new panel designed 3 tube aspen, JPI900
  12. Hi all, I am looking for the kit to add passenger side brakes for my 1982 J. Thanks for any help! Mike
