    Default Radiator shop to recore a radiator?



    Anyone know a good denver area shop that does radiator rebuilds? My 1992 range rover rad. Has a leak and since it's oem I'd like to rebuild it vs risking a replacement. Ty.

    Gold star are pricey and poor quality.

    We use Denver raditor for our big equipment stuff.
    There always good to us.

    Sweet. Yeah I dropped the radiator off yesterday morning and he just called me. My radiator is rebuild able and he's going to take both tanks off and recondition mine. I think he said $268.00. Should be done after 3pm today. TY for info on cards. I saw he had a CC placard in the office with Amex scratched off but seeing there are no computers in sight I can see where he wouldn't accept cards. I'll just bring cash

    Picked it up today. The paint job they threw on there looks pretty crappy but I'm not too worried about that. It's just got runs all over and looks like they just throw down a fat layer and watch it run. Just hoping the thing works better than it looks. 2 new power steering hoses show up tomorrow and I'll be doing all 3 at once.
