Hi there. The wear and tear could be cause by hand lotion, sanitizer, etc.. Many of the chemicals that we put on our hands gets transferred to the components we touch, including our faces, ewww. As for whether you should buy or fly, that is entirely up to you. The best policy is to have a pre-purchase inspection performed and use this as a baseline of intended value or a negotiating tool, the choice is yours. Your Mechanic offers an extensive pre-purchase inspection that is worth the investment. Any reputable seller will have no concerns about a pre-purchase inspection. Your Mechanic has several available technicians that can assist you with a pre-purchase inspection.
