Radiator refurbishment

Post by sp250boy » Wed Jan 15, 2020 11:56 am

Anybody got any suggestions who to use to get a radiator re-cored?
An idea on cost would be useful too

Probably a bit far for you, but this chap is one of the best craftsman out there; his work is superb and prices are very sensible:

Bryan & Son in Tunbridge Wells, Kent - 01892.544.635

He and his wife do all the work in their little premises and many of the VSCC brigade make them their first port of call.

I've used them on numerous occasions for rads, heater matrix and fuel tanks.

I mentioned him in the current DM issue - covering the East Sussex monthly report.

I had the sp one done at Readyrads 106-112 Emily Street Highgate Birmingham B12 OSL.
They were very good and used a modern matrix.

There must be a local Coolex Branch, formerly Serk Marston. They re-cored my V8-250 radiator and it was an excellent job. Never had any cooling problem since, even in traffic on very hot days and no need for additional fans.
