[vcf-midatlantic] Any trick to discharging ADM-3A

So I was about to swap out my ADM5 for my ADM3a with my ALTAIR and realized while I did replace the electrolytic and tantalum caps on the main board, I didn’t change the electrolytic caps on the analog board behind the tube. 

No big deal except that the rubber cup is on the top where I can’t get to it without removing the tube and you aren’t really supposed to remove the tube till you discharge it under the rubber cup.    So chicken or the egg?

Or am I just supposed to let the ADM sit unplugged for a few weeks and just assume it self discharged?

Just when I thought I was finished with this project and was going to move onto my TI silent rebuild.
