I would call it a 9+ interior and exterior.  The only blemish in the interior is shown in one of the photos below - a torn corner in the upholstery near the door, and on the exterior a small crack in the fiberglass on one of the  wheel pants (both of which we have taken off because we are operating it on grass) which is also pictured below. The only mechanical I know of is the parking brake doesn’t work. Complete pre-buy was done for the owner by Forrest Colditz at Calkins Aero at KIWS. Contact:  Ryszard Zadow, ryszardzadow@att.net
