  1. I bought a low time engine IO 540 and Bravo airframe. Both had approximately 600 hours TT. The plane was about 20 years old. The previous owner lost his medical and could no longer fly. The plane had been flown monthly by a friend. It had been kept in a hanger with air conditioning and a humidifier. The owner was very wealthy and always gave the plane the best of care. I liked the airframe and panel but was concerned the engine might fail or be expensive to maintain I had the engine bore scoped, an oil analysis was done and the cylinder compression was taken. All the tests were competed. The engine appeared fine. I had an extensive annual on the plane and bought it. I have put more than 150 hours on the engine. It has performed well and been a very good investment for me.
  2. LOOKING FOR OTHER OWNERS EXPERIENCE IN ADDING SOUND PROOFING TO A MOONEY. ANY RECOMMENDATIONS ON SOUND PROOFING UPHOLSTRY SHOPS PREFERABLY IN TEXAS? DOES ANY ONE HAVE EXPERIENCE WITH SPECIAL PROPELLERS THAT QUIET THE PLANE? WHAT ABOUT FIRE WALL AND FLOOR INSULATION? ANY EXPERIENCE WITH ADDING THICKER GLASS LIKE 1/4 INCH OR 3/8 INCH? I HAVE NOT FOUND THAT ANY OF THE NOISE CANCELLING HEADSETS ARE THE LONG TERM SOLUTION TO HIGH NOISE LEVELS PRESENT IN THE MOONEY COCKPITS. USEFUL THOUGHTS OR COMMENTS ARE APPRECIATED.
