I need to have a brass radiator repaired and was wondering if anyone had experience with a good radiator repair shop in the metro Atlanta area?
I went to a local place who used to repair radiators and they told me the guy moved and that modern cars are plastic so it is hard to find a radiator repair shop - at least up by me.
Depending what kind of repairs are needed, you may find the information in this thread useful.
Remember, if man can make it, man can fix it.
Dan, I used Ferndale radiator in Ferndale, Michigan, this past year to repair a leak in my brass radiator lower tank. Cost about $145 and he redyed the fins, too. They've been in business for over 60 years. The grandson of the original owner is running the shop now. There must be an old shop in your area, too.
Hey Thomas, what's this "redyed" thing your talking about ???? I've seen some brass "T" radiators w/dark fins and always wondered if that's the way their suppose to be. Mine are like a dull brass color. Thought of spraying them flat black but once there painted it's usually a forever thingy !!! What is the correct way ???
In Atlanta, go to Sims Radiator. They are in Decatur, Lawrenceville, Tucker, and Conyers. Sims definitely does Model T radiators. They have fixed Model T radiators for me since 1966, and they do a fabulous job. Their Decatur shop has a Model T radiator hanging under the sign. Look them up under Sims Radiator with Google.
Thanks for the info!
Hey Layden, thank you, thank you, thank you. Will order the Satin Black for my 14' should I use the same for the other "T"s ???
