For some reason, lots of strange markings around the inside wall of each wheel.

The owner replaced all four tyres but hard to believe the tyre changer bites like thisÂ….

Nothing scratching against the wheel.....

It's not wet but very suspicious markings at the radiator.

Didn't see build up of blue/green crystal so don't think the coolant is seeping but even for the final production year model, it would be 15 years old by now.

As mentioned so many times, the radiator is a consumable parts and must be replaced at certain interval, just like the oil filter but at much longer service interval.

Typical EPS rack rattle at the FL side.

Compared to years ago, I think the rattle got worse but strange enough, the squeaking noise when turning the wheel right disappeared and gone.

Another NSX with suspicious leaking marking at the trans case seal.

It's not wet enough to detect the smell of MTF and could be someone touching the area with greasy hand but....

The drive shaft boot/band are the ones from the factory so probably the drive shafts were never overhauled in the past.

Already both shafts are making clicking noise so just replace the seal at the time when overhauling the L-driveshaft.

Was trying to show the white dry markings at the coolant hoses under the header tank but again, not easy positioning the camera especially with the LEV model.
Always that canister tank gets in the way….

Didn't see any cracks around the tank seam and the overflow tube didn't show white/blue/green marking at the exit so not sure where it came from…..

Will look at the top surface of the front cross beam once removed for shift cable removal.
