How much of an issue  is corrosion after the switch to epoxy primer?

Specific to airframe tubes?

There were so many additive causes back in the day...

From leaky windows...

To crummy insulation...

To unknowing owners...

including outdoor storage without a cover...

How about ways water got inside the tubes where they weren’t painted, no drains..?

Tubes, spars, cams... airplane parts that corrode... not just Mooneys.  Some more terribly expensive than others...

PP thoughts only, not a mechanic or metallurgist...

Was any found on your pre-buy?  I'd be surprised.

Oh, I just noticed............not the Ovation, but a Bravo?  All super cool. :)

Note the S/N cutoff for SB M20-208B. Not sure what a “flush window” is.

Excluding all flush window aircraft...

Hmmmmm....

That doesn’t ring a bell....

We have the potential to learn something new about Mooneys right here, right now.... :)

I asked Stacey Ellis what "flush windows" means and response is:

Flush means it's flush with the cabin skins and held in place with only sealer whereas some older models were held in with screws around the windows

I queried Don Maxwell about the same thing and his response is:

Pre J Models Were glued and had screws thru the plexi glass. All later models are glued with a retainer bracket
