Thought the group might enjoy this. Had some radiator shell problems; a broken fitting on one side and lost thimble on the other. I fixed the broken side by riveting an L shaped bracket of steel using cut off nails for rivets. Couldn't find a thimble in my box of old used parts. I just couldn't see spending $8 post for a $1.50 part and waiting for a new thimble from the suppliers ... so I cut the buggered end off the bottom of an old steel dope cup and it did the job.
