Things get hot. The heater core restoration

The heater core and related housing assembly, like most other parts on the car, was in need of a good going over. The case was media blasted and powder coated to the correct semi-gloss finish. The heater core was disassembled, cleaned, re-soldered, and painted to the correct iron oxide colour. Lastly all of the hardware was re-plated and the entire assembly was put back together. Joined to it are the restored brake reservoir bottles and heater core valve (both subjects of previous blog posts).

The completed assembly is now ready to re-install. As always we'll begin with some before photos.
