James,
Check out www.partsforplanes.com .
And before buying ask to see if there's a return policy.

Hi James;
Good news on the wings.
I should think that this is a good time to be looking for not so new but still good avionics and instruments since most every avionics shop I know is busy pulling that stuff out to make room for the latest and greatest glass panel stuff.
There are also instrument overhaul shops such as Instrument Overhaul of San Diego that may be able to overhaul what you have.
I recently installed two uAvionix AV-30 units in place of my DG and Art Horizon. That allowed me to take out my vacuum system. They aren't too expensive and pack a lot of data onto one screen.
Again, my first action would be to type KX 155 into Google, and eBay. Make sure that the vendor gives you a money back satisfaction guarantee. Most reputable ones will.
Let me know what you decide/find
Steve

Right side inspection panel installed. Looks just as good as left. Guess I’ll start planning to keep her now. Any good lines on used radios/avionics? Was thinking KX-155’s for now.
Then there’s the instruments…

Hi James;
Looks good to me too. But as you say, we're not the one signing it off.
As I recall, the area of concern is the aft inboard portion of the main wing spar.
I have attached some Piper Service Bulletins to give you guidance on a full inspection.
Thanks for posting the pictures.
Steve

Left wing pics attached. First 3 are from the inboard inspection panel from factory. The rest are from inspection panel I installed today. Looks great to me. But I’m not the one that can sign off on it…

I’m just having the corrosion inspection done. At first I thought it needed the eddy inspection, but the a&p said it did not.
So, I have to install the inspection panels in order for that to happen.
Thanks!
