I think the concept of money is completely divorced from reality down there.

Back in the 80s we used to go a place near Bramhall lane in Sheffield that would cut a chunk out of a scrap truck rad to put a new core into a smaller one. They were cheap and always busy.

Well the radiator arrived and fits but I need a couple of adaptors for the transmission cooler lines. As the lines are bent to buggery and have joining hoses I have just joined them together for now so it could be road tested. I did about 20 miles in it and all seems well. I have a few more little jobs to do then I will take it for a proper run.

If they are more expensive than importing an all new radiator from overseas, then something is fucked up, don't you think?

Yep. Physical economy vs. monetary economy. The latter, devised by total sociopaths, is a surefire way to destroy the world.
