    New headliner and carpet is *finally* installed. Was supposed to be doing transition training this week. May be lucky to get one lesson in this week and one this weekend. Have an 8 hr drive or much shorter flight in 2 weekends to Atlantic City NJ if i feel good in it by then. Would love to fly to NYC at night on a hot date w my wife if we do fly to vacation.

  2. Honestly, there were a couple pieces that didn't want to stick that well. Since it was 11:00 at night, I figured the headliner would hold it and I just went home. Sorry I don't have a better answer for you Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  3. I gave up on returning the kit and decided to play Tetris last night. No way would I spend the $700 again for the factory "kit". The pre cut pieces only fit where they were intended less than 50%. The rest I just eye balled and cut with my pocket knife. Id save some dough and buy regular closed cell from Spruce if i had it to do over again. At least I did my part this month in keeping the factory going.... Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Lol. Give me time. I'm only 8 months into owning this ship. [emoji6][emoji16] Speaking of 8 months, my wife saw it for the very first time last night. I introduced it as "our bleeding money hole". Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Got the official Mooney insulation installed. Absolutely would not buy that kit again. I honestly only used it because it was in my hands. But at least I can sleep tight knowing there will be no issues with corrosion on the tube frame. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Scope creep keeps happening. Interior guy started on new carpet and headliner today. I honestly can't believe my wife hasn't taken issue with the financial blood bath this thing is becoming. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  9. Follow up post pending on Monday after i hear back from air mods. It seems these 2 part numbers I ordered for roughly $700 are only "insulating" the side walls. They're researching if its just for noise. I wanted to warm it up in the winter and was expecting the ceiling to get insulation too. If its just noise abatement ill be sending it back. For the pricing I was pretty disappointed on what i actually got. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  10. Kudos to Don Maxwell for pointing this beggar to the right place. Here is it, hope it helps someone else in the future. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  11. Anyone have a diagram for where these factory supplied insulation panels go in my M20E? I got these 6 weeks ago but like a genius I put the box aside and didnt look thru the contents . Interior is getting reassembled next week and id like to get it insulated today. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  12. Best buy is running that same deal right now. I just got another yesterday to go in my panel dock Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  13. I bought a bone stock 64 e last fall for what i thought was a decent price upfront. Thought I could update the panel as i went. I'm got over 70 grand into the plane now. Should have spent the money upfront on an E or F that was already mostly how i wanted it. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    It hasn't even been a week yet and all the frustration with this jackasses billing has already faded Into the background. Avionics guy texted me this photo today and said he is planning on delivering the plane start of next week. Can't wait to enjoy all this change!
  15. Im not one to normally take the high road but my wife agrees we'll pay him off and just walk. Shes upset too. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
