Happy holidays folks smile

Back from wonderful time visiting my real dad and his 6 siblings.

Member bigsmoke mailed me this filter so thought I'd cut it open. Glad I didn't use it; look at that ADBV.

Kinda sad actually

Enjoy the pictures and everyone have a safe and responsible Labor Day

Tends to dispel the idea the ADBV is being cut after the filter has been used for a while does it not?

There's something seriously wrong with the inlet threads.

Not to mention that the media looks like it's wanting to tear before it even gets used.

I'd think using the filter and the ADBV flexing over and over on those sharp edges makes the cuts even worse.

That looks like it's just waiting to tear.

No argument here, but I have seen comments where someone said there was no way of knowing if it happened at the factory or after many miles of use. I guess we can put that one to bed.
