Thumbs up Radiator repairs? great shop.....

Posting this here for future info... might help someone else...

Found the right radiator had a leak around the top of it (Red Nulon Coolant is very visible once the panels are off!)... pulled it and took it to Alexandria Radiator Repairs, Botany Rd, Alexandria here in Sydney. Chinese Aussie named Sunny runs it... super friendly/happy guy!
Same day service... they found the top seal had leaked so they've repaired and pressure tested, all good. Originally thought the core might have cracked, but finding crook seals was way better as they didn't have to weld it.
They also pressure tested a spare I bought off fleabay (no charge) and said it was good.

So to Sunny at Alexandria Radiator Repairs. It was worth $120.

With the exchange rate hanging around US$0.79 to AU$1.00, it might be worth you just sending it over, John!
Picked them up this morning..... the repaired one is all nice and black again, even got a new cap (Denso) for $15. Hope it's the right one... showed him the one on the Max BMW Fische.
Haven't met such a genuinely happy guy in a long time, certainly not working in a repair shop!
