WTB rounded window interior panels

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy interior side panels with radius windows. These are the three side panels and the one door panel, 4 total. They are the OEM panels Mooney used in the M20J MSE and the M20K with rounded windows. Either the earlier ABS or later fiberglass will do. 

Thank you

Pete K

Is that the difference b/t newer and older mooney windows?

Recently, Mooney eluded to having a refurbishment program for older Mooneys coming soon, which would make such pieces available from them. It might not hurt to email them and see where they are with it, Peter.

@PTK,

 

  I have a set of panels from a '91 J MSE, not perfect but in very usable condition.  Let me know if these will work for you.

I talk to vantage plane plastics and they said they had a set for about 700 bucks but they’re not FAA approved yet but if you had a set to give them to duplicate them they can give them to you... but it’s some kind a weird cover their ass kind of thing going on there they won’t sell them to you out right unles you can show them a set you posessss and ship them to them.

Hector at Aero Comfort could repair those cover them in ultra leather and they would look much better than new.

After a few years the ultraleather (thin urethane foam, actually) begins to debond from the plastic on convex bends and inside corners, then comes loose eventually everywhere.  it pulls loose and looks like a bad wrap job.  And where the screws go it twists and has little camera lens wrinkles.  We tried this back in 1998 on my buddy's Cardinal RG. Looked fantastic for a year.

That was you. I've seen Hector's work that was done over 10 years ago and it still looks brand new even in 100 degree TX heat.

Still looks brand new like this poor guy... right?

But no worries! Hector does give a very very long one year warranty on his work!
