    As my standard procedure, whenever I drain the MTF, the strainer is removed and inspected.



    There was very little amount of metal dust so looked like it was cleaned in the past.




    Time to go bed as I got cold ...

    As same as the NSX factory, the polyurethane sealant was poured into the gap where the new frame was installed and then off to the paint booth.
