classic car radiator restorations

Postby Jasonmarie » Sun Oct 28, 2018 12:00 pm

So this young chap can do bespoke radiators for our capris so bespoke really as I think young dan is going to use him for his radiator. But I have that posh gleaming radiator cover I could not fit a alloy one but with this chap he would make one for me so it was spot on .
So here’s his information classic car radiator restorations 07871472825

And his business card . I hope dan can give us some feed back .

What are his prices like? Sadly, a custom made radiator is probably Danny's only option.

I don’t know it was just the alloy one that made me think as the ones you can get just will not fit on Mine and still look standard .

Dan will be on later or after his wedding and know a price .

I haven't looked at getting a new one made up, but the chappy did quote me £128 to recondition and re-core the radiator I already have - the cheapest quote I have received so far out of the four I got!

Will have to look at addressing the radiator after I actually get the engine working first! :lol:

That's probably quite wise, Danny!
That's not a bad price for a radiator recore and recondition. At least you'll know then that it will be OK for a good few years.
:goodluck:

And it's always around bloody Christmas! I remember a few years ago when I hit a lamppost on Christmas eve - new valence, new wing new bonnet... :swear:

All part of the fun though I guess! :cheers:
