Hi everyone.. as some of you know, i am restoring my 55 desoto. i am starting to look around to determine the best way to restore the radiator. I have two of them and they both have minor damage and will not hold water. Of course, they are not tube and fin type. they are the ribbon type cores. What is the best, and most effective way to restore them..recore with ribbon type core? recore with tube and fin core? replace with modern radiator that fits? Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance! Lee
