  1. Thanks! See discussion earlier in this thread; can't connect 2 nav sources to the G3x when using a non garmin autopilot. They may be working on a change to the stc to allow this, but I wasn't going to hold my breath. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. You've got to draw the line somewhere. I couldn't justify the extra $15k, especially with the STEC30 performing so well.
  3. Picked up my plane this week. Soooooooo happy with it.
  4. The name of the town is Au Gres, on Saginaw bay. Ice cream place is Zaner's. Closest GA airport would be 6D9. They had an airport right in Au Gres, but it closed in the 80's. Some digging shows that you can get Mooney's ice cream in Saginaw as well, HYX looks like a good option, though I've never been.
  5. That was taken in a small Michigan town; I'll check and see how widely distributed Mooney's ice cream is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. Update - I ended up using one of the plastic automotive clips. Seems to work well, but I don't think you can remove and replace too many times. Like maybe none. That should be fine, since this is an accent piece that you really don't ever need to remove. The holes had gotten a bit oblong, so I filled them in with a repair kit from Plane Plastics, then redrilled the holes. I'll post some photos of the interior when it's all done.
  9. I'll stop by one tomorrow and check. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. They are metal. I have enough good ones for all the armrests, so I'll only need the plastic ones for the accent panels (the long wavy trim pieces just below the windows). Not sure what caused the metal ones to break, but it looks like previous owners had trouble keeping them in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I'm going to try some of the plastic alternatives available online; if they don't work I may be looking to take your clips off your hands! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Hard to tell, but the ones from Summit might just work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I don't have my parts manual handy either; will check it Monday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I'm finally wrapping up my interior redo in conjunction with a panel upgrade, and am in the middle of reupholstering the accent pieces that attach to the plastic interior panels of my J. They are held in with spring clips (or spring rivets, or keyhole rivets, or ?????). Several of them are broken, and I'm trying to source replacements but haven't had any luck. See photo for example. Has anyone found a source for these before? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Needed to model an elastomeric seal that wasn't ( sealing, that is). Strains weren't extreme, so didn't need to get too exotic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
