I had my plane painted at a very reputable shop in Maine.
When I picked the plane up, the engine ran rough until I had a backfire then smoothed out. I performed a through run-up and attempted to depart, as I reached rotation speed, the engine died. I got the plane started again and taxied back to the ramp to sort things out. When I removed the air filter a piece of upholstery foam fell out of the air box. They used the foam to prevent paint over-spray from going up through the ram air door hole in the top of the air box and forgot to remove it.
The backfire probably blew the foam out and it lied in the bottom of the air box until the engine suction pulled in during my take-off roll. If the foam got sucked in a few seconds later, I would have been in the pines at the end of the runway.
The shop was very nonchalant about my near-death experience.
All I can say is do a extremely detailed preflight before departing.
