You can see how sparse my panel is. KX170B and KI208 are not even hooked up (no harness yet). And no I haven’t flown it yet. Close after one year of work but not there yet. I had no idea how much damage he did robbing all sorts of small and not so small things to put on his RV he’s building. I’m going to lose money on this but I have a thing for saving planes that are destined for the scrapper.

I hired a voice actor to do the audio files for the MVP-50P voice annunciator files. You may download and use it for your own just chop the pieces you need. Not for re-sale.  Zipped folder is already chopped down to 8-bit WAV files, I think you can go up as much as 22KHz for better sound quality.

Mooney space win win. I noticed in the first post that the Sky beacon was being replaced so I reached out and we struck a good deal for the purchase of the unit which I installed today. So how about that now I'm compliant and can fly into the Charlie and Bravo. Truth is we only needed it for KLVK as its one we need to access for family and it is just a mile or two into the SFO veil. Thanks again Spleecho and good luck with all your upgrades

Pulled out so much old wire! To say scat tubing needed replacement is an understatement, Mose nose is full of it. Spent hours cleaning the engine and firewall, was awful, years of grime. He put in the avionics as mock up just to show me the light at the end of the tunnel. Wiring harness for transponder is done and was extremely easy, especially with Garmin’s altitude encoder. Hope audio panel goes the same way. Here’s some pics. Anybody got advice on how to paint the aluminum instrument panel? I want to do flat black.

Nice work!  Note that the pushrod tube lock springs on cylinder 4 are not locked yet.

Engine is complete, now hooking up sensors to it. Instrument panel is cut and coming in on Tuesday. Guy that cut it for me was beyond cheap and extremely easy to work with. Once I confirm fit I’ll share contact info if you guys need help with your panel.
