  1. Attached is a small picture showing the sun visors that were installed when I had the airplane. It's not a great pic but it's the only one I have left after a hdd crash. I don't really remember much about the sun visors but I think they are similar to what was in my 201 that I just replaced with Rosen Sun Visors. They are well worth the money and not expensive....I highly recommend them.
  2. So the A3B6 has separate mags whereas the A3B6D did not? I was under the impression that both had dual mags but the A3B6D had a single drive whereas the A3B6 has dual drive and dual magnetos.
  3. Can anyone tell me what the main differences are between the IO360-A3B6D and IO360-A3B6 are?
  4. Dugosh Aviation in Kerrville is a Mooney Service Center not too far away from you. I had had my annual done there. Don Maxwell in Longview is a bit of a hike but he is decidedly one of the best Mooney shops out there. I'm sure there are probably some other experienced Mooney mechanics/shops around the area.
  5. Awesome KTAS and KTGS. That's why i love Mooneys. Nothing else comes close on the same fuel burn.

    That's a sweet lookin' ride you got there Paul.
  8. That's excellent news then. I was under the impression that upgrades had to be paid out of pocket....that finance companies would not include them in a loan. Being able to include upgrades in a loan makes it so much easier for everyone....buyer AND seller.
  9. I haven't bought an aircraft in a long time. Is it possible to get a loan that would include the upgrade or would I have to get a loan for the aircraft and then pay for the avionics? If lenders allow for upgrades as part of the purchase (e.g. engine overhaul, avionics) then it makes purchasing a much easier proposition for buyers like me. After all, if I'm purchasing a $150k aircraft (or whatever the cost) having to come up with what amounts to 50% of the total cost (as opposed to just the 15% down payment for the loan) becomes cost prohibitive.
  10. I am starting to look at the Turbo Mooney's that are available but won't be ready to buy until end of summer or so. I was out at All American Aircraft a week ago and looked at many of the Mooneys that are there. Your 231 looks nice. I completely understand about trying to sell without a modern panel. With the cost of avionics, it is difficult to justify buying an airplane and having to shell out thousands of dollars on top of the down payment required to purchase the aircraft. I too am looking at aircraft that at least have one fairly modern GPS/Com/Nav and ideally a 2020 compliant ADS-B. In a
  11. An interesting look. Thanks for sharing this. Some of the data surprises me....like the number of accidents during cruise. It would be nice to be able to see a graph that compares IMC to VMC. I was expecting a larger occurrence of IMC so that was a bit of a surprise.
  12. That's a beautiful panel. When I had my 1966 E (N9278M) I had a panel redo and I installed some EI Gauges. I enjoyed my new panel so much more than the original panel. This was back in 2000. Oh how times have changed since then. GPS/NAV/Comms are commonplace. I had an Apollo Loran C system I used and really liked.
