  5. It’s amazing how good she looks in pictures! When you get up to her, it’s a different story. There are quite a few patches and some surface corrosion. Still, a hangar does wonders. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes you’re right, black might be a better choice than the brown. My kids fee the same way! I’ll ask the boss what she thinks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That’s amazing Jim! I actually like it! So what’s it look like now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. This Mooney came from Southern California and lived in Santa Monica, Oxnard and Camarillo before I snatched it and took it here to Ohio. It’s interesting yours had same color! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. Bluehighwayflyer, Thanks for that info! I had no idea.... I wonder what it was like when it rolled out of factory in 1965.
  11. OK, so this is the original paint job from 1965. It's a sort of ivory base and the other colors are yellow and dark brown. Believe it or not, I'm considering repainting it in the original colors, pretty much just like it is. I never thought I'd like these colors when I bought it, but honestly, after spending some time in the plane, and making some fond memories, the familiar sandy colored sunburst still appeals to me on the ramp. Call me crazy. I'm not really into the new schemes, or anything that takes away from the natural lines of the M20, which I love. So, am I crazy or should I keep it this way? Thanks in advance!
  12. Entering my first annual and am being told there is AD on oil pump drive impeller. There is actually a very interesting history on this here: http://www.enginehistory.org/AlAvCtrAC/AlAvCtrAC2.php but apparently, reading the AD (http://rgl.faa.gov/Regulatory_and_Guidance_Library/rgAD.nsf/AOCADSearch/5DE5ACBD6CBC8B2A8625684D00643AC1?OpenDocument), it seems to me (and previous owners in my logbooks and mechanics) that this AD did not apply to planes built before 1970 (mine is 1965). Anybody have any experience with this? I'm going to have to make my case in morning with my mechanic. Thanks!
  13. Also maybe model of Mooney and any avionics installed. Lots of cfis out there, not as many who know Mooney’s or even have experience. I’ve flown vintage Mooney’s and own one, but would be hard pressed to fly a K-Model or one of the new ones. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
