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.

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.

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.

I'd like to know if anybody has experience with using Airtex on the the articulating J model seats.  In the front these seats have a solid pan and the upholstery on the seat cushion is held on with U shaped plastic clips.  No glue or hog rings.  The seat back is probably glued on the back before the trim - haven't had that off.
