  1. I'd give a kidney for your "before" panel. Awesome "after" panel!
  2. @WilliamR, myself, and our better halves had a fine lunch at LuLu’s. Maybe next time we can round up a few more to join!
  3. I usually hand it to Amy and say, "Here, hold this for a while." Looking for options, too.
  4. No clue. We’ll make it a little busier. You gonna join us? If I’m reading this correctly it’s @WilliamR and me, each with a plus one? It’s ironic that the Alabama Mooney Roundup is two ships coming down from Atlanta. @1964-M20E what time do you figure you could make it over? Amy and I are leaning toward leaving early, and landing at Dauphin Island for an hour or two before hopping back up to JKA for lunch. We’d stick around to meet the dinner crowd, but the home strip, although lit, is a little treacherous after dark.
  5. I worked at a paint shop in college. I can smell this shop. That's good jog down memory lane. Staying tuned for the after photos!
  6. Bride saw the menu, and combined with her love of Gulf Shores, she says we're in. We may fly down the night before. Which FBO is the rally point?
  7. All these solenoid posts have me thinking a proactive swap is in order before our Big Trip West. A fix of less than 100 bucks versus a surprise stay at a fuel stop will make the bride happier on our vacation trip. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks @carusoam, I’ve already got a replacement on the way!
  9. I cut my teeth on old Zlin Akrobats and Trener Masters. You haven't met a parts hoarder until you've met a Zlin owner. Someone just bought two I've been flying for as long as this Mooney - they were mainly buying the parts with the airplanes as a nice addition. They've been without factory support for decades. Brittain's been closed for a couple years now? I just got a box from Mooney. The Brittain stuff is out there. It just takes a little scrounging, and that's nothing new to me. In the meantime, here's how she handled the bumps with a patch over the tear yesterday. Much improved.
  10. Today, I found my vacuum leak. The forward (red system) rudder actuator bellows. Got some calls, emails, and PMs sent looking for a replacement. Slowly but surely we’re getting there!
  11. I didn’t even realize that one had made it online yet. He’s been gone a year and a half and I still had to keep the tissues handy when I wrote it. And now, as I read it, too. If it’s online that means the next one isn’t far from newsstands. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Banker’s bag to hold pens, flashlight, and any small loose items. It and my iPad or iPhone are the only loose items normally when I fly. Everything else lives in my flight bag. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Monthly column with Plane & Pilot Magazine. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Yes. One penny against the plastic, to elevate the second penny and protect the plastic yoke. The second penny wedges between first penny and under the rim of the PC button. I'll try and remember to take a picture or video next time I'm with the plane.
