    Started to work on another NSX from last week.
    The service menu is the Eng Refresh + LMA, Koyo radiator, Health Check,
    drive shaft, etc.


    As same for everyone, around this time of the year, the owner was
    so busy that he decided to use flatbed service to bring his NSX to

    Started to work on another NSX.
    Service menu includes quite a lot of things from fuel filler lid alignment to the drive shaft, brake master cyl, cooling system, etc so itís going to be very busy again.


    Started with the initial inspection to understand the current condition of each parts as well as the bolts and nuts involved.

    The existing coolant hoses looked to be from original and really tired.

    Lots of rust on the hose cramp and the pipes.


    Looks like the pipes hidden by the hose are already corroded and Iíll be spending hours cleaning them againÖ.

    Glad itís not winter yetÖ.
