    anyone care to take a gander at what a wing repair would cost? 2d hand wing? the replacement work?

    I think a guy on the piper forum said he was quoted 12k to get a new spar installed, which is essentially rebuilding the entire wing. I don't think that included R&R, shipping, or paint. WAG would be around 20k. Good used wings probably similar cost or maybe a bit less, but I'm guessing you won't find one now. The right wings seem to be the ones that fail the EC inspection.

    30k is my guess. 10-15k for wing then install/paint

    Seller isn’t making any allusions about it. It’s good for parts. Parts is parts. He just don’t want to take the time to part it out out himself and figures someone who does might crunch the numbers and see it as a deal. Maybe the core value of engine 1 could bring in a few bucks. Engine 2 only has 1000 hours on it. Yup, look:mad2: A good left wing might bring in a few bucks to someone who got a bad eddy thing on theirs. Etc.

    Plenty of great radios? What is that guy smoking? The 155 is of some value, the rest is junk.

    I think Airframe Components has well refurbished Piper and Cessna wings in stock. Don't know the prices, though.

    "Great radios!"
    "Use the motor in an experimental!" "3300 SMOH" lol

    And those vintage seats! Those must be worth $7,000.
