Mooney panel orig

 

A typical pre-1969 panel - this one is a 1968 M20F. As you can see, instruments and radios are scattered all over the panel (No, the airplane is not in flight. Evanston, Wyoming is at 7163’ MSL).

 

 

There are two styles for the copilot's panel. The standard style, using the original engine and fuel six-pack gages, is depicted in the picture below on the left and in detail on this page. The alternate style, using custom gages, is depicted below on the right. For that detail page, click here.

The next three photos show the new layout. Notice that with no plastic covers, the new instrument panels can be powder-coated (or painted) to match the interior of the aircraft.

For this particular upgrade, the existing King transponder was retained. New are a KMA 24 audio panel, a Garmin GNC 250 X.L GPS/ COM radio and a KX155 nav/com with a KI209 glide slope/localizer nav head. The equipment exchange and new panel lightened this airplane by about 26 pounds.
