I've found the great prebuy checklist this forum put together. Thanks for that. A small portion of items there are things I (not an A&P) can check before ordering up a prebuy, obviously most are not. I'm looking at a DA40 that's never been hangared, had a prop strike in its first 10s of hours (that logs show was properly inspected and repaired), and generally hasn't seen much TLC--but it hasn't by any means been neglected. Are there some inspections you would recommend that could turn this into a hard no even before a prebuy?
