  1. Given this statement, what was the price for the job on N201TY? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I tend to over engineer. The mounting piece is thin with two holes in it for bolts. Just an added margin of error in the event it is ever subjected to loads. And yes, I did heat treat the steel after welding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. One of the concerns was keeping the correct geometry, so the brackets were sized to match the geometry of the shoulder harness in the front seat. There was absolutely no change to the airframe, so the FSDO agreed no 337 was required. The inspector just noted what was done and the approval in the file. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Fred, I looked, but believe the first mock up of the bracket fell casualty to a massive purge associated with a recent move. However, I was able to find pics of the actual brackets, mount location, and finished product: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Fred, I used Clarence’s method and got a field approval by my local FSDO. I still have a mock-up bracket I built at the hangar. I’ll take a picture and post it for you next time I go to the airport. Basic metal working skills and a cheap MIG welder are all that you need. Brandon
  6. I am reviving this thread. Is anyone committed to go to JKA this weekend? I am a definite maybe. It really depends on whether my unreliable painters show up on Saturday morning. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I just had dejavu. Didn’t you organize one of these in the not so distant history and then not show up? Some lame excuse about the plane not making it out of the avionics shop in time? Lol. In all seriousness, these are always fun. Lulu’s definitely has the resources to accommodate a large group. If it takes a Milo’s burger to get Bob to come, I’ll get one on the way to the airport and toss it on the hat rack for him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ricky takes care of 4 Mooney’s at KEET, including mine. He’s a great guy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I am still a few weeks off on the project. The timing may work out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. For those who have upgraded to CIES senders, I am not quite there yet. However, I could use an inboard sender for an early J. Anyone have one on the shelf you would like to sell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. We had a great turnout today. 13 Mooney’s in total! The restaurant was standing room only. It was great meeting those able to make the trip. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Looks like we are scheduled to meet up at Cullman (KCMD) next Saturday, Jan. 26. I am looking forward to having another good group. Last time we did this, I believe we had 9 Mooney’s fly in. So long as the weather is good, my wife and two daughters will be joining. Let’s get a head count on who all is confirmed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Ratchet straps. Got distracted by someone during the pre-flight. Strap broke at apparently the exact time the ring exited the wing.
  14. They will come out. Ask me how I know...
  15. I just went the helicoil route at the last annual as the threads on the right wing were in rough shape. On mine, the clearances were too tight to install a nut on top. Also installed the Lasar tie downs. They were a bit expensive, but look great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
