Not professional level, but very functional. $115 shipped with all three pieces. (SOLD-Josh) 6. Also have a Garmin 796 Portable GPS with the GXM 40 antenna and all accessories including the home docking station. $1100 shipped. Great condition. 7. Trim wheel and chain set up. I bought this as a spare a while back thinking if the trim cogs. teeth or chain gears ever wore out I'd never find parts. Bought as a back-up. Good working condition. $125 shipped. PM me or send a regular email: ultimatefitne379@bellsouth.net Tom
  2. Just renewed my donation. 7741M is long sold and gone, but this site has provided me a wealth of information over the years and certainly gotten me out of a jam more than once. I hope to see it continue to help others. Never know when another Mooney might be parked in my hanger.. Sometimes I sure miss seeing the backward tail, or maybe tired of everyone else's tail being backward . Tom
  3. Hate to see it was purchased to be flipped. It was brokered and I never met the buyer. I was hoping it was to someone who just wanted it because they wanted a nice Mooney. I guess the key was getting it sold, but I'll admit if it sells for $135k it will hurt my financial feelings greatly. Apparently, I settled for far less than what I could have gotten for it if she goes for near the asking. Regardless, If money was no object I'd buy it back in a minute, but not at 135k..She's a great bird. I like my twin and that is what fits my mission right now for business and personal, but 41M had a lot of memories. I'd keep her as my weekend ride if I was financially able. -Tom
  4. Are they the same height as J seats or E?. There is enough room in them to fold forward and back.. You might check the Rocky Mountain site. In all honesty...they might say there are particular measurements for "correct" fitment among different planes, but when I bought the Twin Comanche it had tan sheepskin up front. I took them off to wash them and compared them to the "special order" tan Mooney ones that I had in my E..They were darn near the same in pattern and color. I put the Mooney tan on the rear seats of the Comanche and kept the tan ones that were already on the Comanche up front. I'd give a hundred dollar bill if someone that didn't know could tell what was what...When the day is over I don't think there is a big pattern difference after they are installed and strapped up. -Tom
  5. I would be interested in the sheepskin seat covers, pending a picture of them. Basic mooney seats? Headrests?

  6. Looking at flight tracking my old gal has found a new place to nest in Denver, Colorado. Wednesday 07-Nov-2018 04:40PM CST Joe Foss Field - FSD 07:03PM MST Rocky Mtn Metropolitan - BJC M20P

  8. I don't know who he is. The broker put the deal together. I have not met him or spoken to him. All I do know is we have a deposit and signed contract. He plans to pick it up Thursday. -Tom
  9. I still have 6 days to have seller's remorse. My feet are already kind of chilly (cold feet coming). If he finds something he does not like...well, I'd honestly be okay with it. I think I've tried every possible reason to keep it. The struggle is real -Tom
  10. Dig the sheepskins out of the closet !!! Oh wait what are you wanting for them

  11. I have a black set that are brand new if someone needs a set. I came across a EBay auction and they showed two sets available. I offered to buy both sets as it was cheap enough. They did not know what model other than low back seats so I took a chance since they looked Mooney size. I already had a set and thought they looked just like what I had...Bought a tan and black set. I sold my original from Aerosheep. I had probably 4 years in them. Replaced the old Aerosheep ones with the new tan ones I got on EBay and they fit perfectly. I still have the black left over. If black will work for someone I'd let them go pretty cheap. I think they actually are Aerosheep or the other main company. If I get a PM I'll get them out of my closet and get more details. These are brand new and I think they have the headrest for pilot side. ultimatefitne379@bellsouth.net On a side note if the sale goes through on 41M this coming Thursday I'll have a Mooney Sidewinder Tug for sale also. -Tom
  12. As of yesterday there is a contract and deposit on 7741M. The new prospective owner will check it over next Thursday and probably fly her home. It's been a pleasure to be the steward of 41M for the last 7 years. Lots of great trips, memories and fun times. MS has been a wealth of knowledge and I've made lots of new Mooniac friends. She has taught me a lot over the last 7 years and I can honestly say made me a better pilot. Assuming the deal completes without a hitch I can only hope she treats the new owner with many more years of safe flying and memories. It's been a fun ride. I'll be flying the Twin Comanche for a while, but can't promise there won't be another backward tail in the hanger at some point later down the road. Once you've had a Mooney I'd say it's an addiction of sort. -Tom
  13. The avionics I think would justify the price delta between the E and the J. I actually have far, far more money invested in the plane. The avionics alone are worth more than the plane itself. When Adam and I talked about it and he and I came up with a listing price I was well aware upfront that I was not going to get any real return on all the glass in it. I'm into it well over the $175k mark and probably could back it up with receipts, but we have to be real and I know it is a 1973-74 E model Mooney. You will wait a very long time waiting for a buyer at $175...probably never happen. While it hurts to take a hit like that I'd rather market it at a 'market value" and see someone get a great plane and know it will sell in a realistic time frame. -Tom
