I use to make and repairs rads - did so for 18months. They will simply strip the paint off (if your lucky, they will do the entire thing, which in turn, may clean out the inside too!) simply tin it, and apply solder.

Got it fixed.... 40$ total. I guess therewas a lot of work to be done to fix it. Still cheaper than buying a new rad.

So basically, they heated the corner, bent the metal back, soldered the hole shut, bent the metal back, and soldered it back... then spray painted that area... I dunno...

The rad does not leak anymore, but for 40$ i dunno haha, hopefully it was dont right and i wont have anymore trouble... Lesson learned, dont use 2" 6/32 bolts Off to home hardware for proper botls :P And a tap, because the hole is ******

Decent deal. Most mechanical/machine shops have an $80-120 and hour rate. You got charged a half hour or there about. A lot of them have a minimum 1 hour charge.
