Hi all, hope everyone is well?, To begin with my 3200 has recently started leaving me presents in the morning's, ie a couple of drops of coolant under the nearside foglight. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess it's the 3 rubber hoses that have given up? Anyway's to cut a long story short I've dropped the rad off with a bloke in a shed....somewhere down south ......that reckons he can fabricate a dog's bollox replica one out of aluminium, in one piece (still twin core) that eliminates the hoses (weak link deleted) for not much more than a 2nd hane one. It's still a couple of weeks away but I will update here how I get on with it.

Probably the best way to go. OEM parts are faround too much esp with their poor design and or quality.

Looks really promising, one thing to watch with aluminium radiators is over cooling as they can be too efficient so be prepared to blank sections off in the cooler months.
