Default Pre-Buy RV6A @ KPIE

Hello all, new to the forum (as far as communicating) been using it for research for quite some time as I honed in on the right RV for me. Well I have found "the one" pending a pre-buy inspection I should be bringing her home in a couple weeks.

A bit about the plane. RV-6A, build completed 2000. IO-360 with a Sensenich FP prop as well as a spare Catto Carbon 3 blade that needs the nickel leading edge refurbished. Has the Sam James cowl and sealed plenum. We have a pre-buy scheduled for 9/13 in Tampa. I've review all the logs since day 1 and nothing alarming. I was hoping to get some advice of areas to focus on as I will plan to be there in person. Please spent all of its life, except for the last 2.5 months, in California, has about 400 hours AFTT and Engine SMOH. I spent about an hour with the owner on FaceTime walking the plane, engine compartment, behind the avionics panel, etc. She looks good in photos and over video but only a pre-buy will tell in the end. The inspector is very familiar with RVs and has inspected many in the past.

Any words of advice?

Happy I may soon be part of this great community
