    Black Clover Custom

    Pressure washed the chassis and just have to scrape the big grease chunks off. Also got the brake assemblies cleaned. Ready to paint.
    Sending out the Hydro Brake booster to Karps in Inland CA for rebuild.
    Welded the neck of the water pump and cleaned it.
    Also rebuilt the rear brake cylinders with kits.
    Finished the manifold grinding and used steel epoxy to get it smooth before paint.
    And got back some small parts from blasting.
    Been working on other customer cars inbetween. Non HAMB friendly but pay the bills.
    This 46 is close to going back together. Radiator will go out to get boiled clean and checked for leaks. But yeah its going. Still having fun with this one.
    Oh! His original head came back from machine shop with the #3 exhaust valve fixed. It had 235 valves put into it years ago to be able to get valves easily. Its back on the motor. IMG_1514.JPG IMG_1507.JPG IMG_1508.JPG IMG_1509.JPG IMG_1510.JPG IMG_1511.JPG IMG_1512.JPG
