Very nice interior and video. Thanks for taking the time. Is that the standard Airtex vinyl type seat covers? Did you also look at the pricing on the leather option? Either way, they look great.

I went with the standard vinyl.  If I had a more expensive Mooney I would have considered leather.  I actually wanted cloth but my wife talked me into vinyl. Testing it out in the hot hangar, I like it more than I though I would.

Completely understand. Just wondering how much more the leather would be. From the video the quality looked great.

Thanks for the video.   Really appreciate it.  I'm thinking about an Airtex interior.  @Mark M20B, would you not go with the additional foam in the seats, which would save you from having to buy new yokes and seat belts?   Is that an option?

After completing the install and flying with the new seats, I ended up trimming down the seat foam.  I like that the seats are a little higher but they are too high for me.  My A&P also thought they were too high after flying the plane.  I trimmed about a half inch and went for a test flight and think a little more still needs to be removed.  I like that the seats are higher but they are still too high.

+1 for Airtex also. It took longer and was more expensive then I had figured but after 5 years it's holding up very well and is still comfortable. And Airtex was very helpful when I ran into any questions.

Do you notice a difference in noise levels with the new sound proofing?

I think it is a little quieter but there is not that much of a change.  I noticed a huge difference while working on the plane on the ground.  The difference is not as noticeable while flying though.  I think a lot of noise comes through the windows.
