Keep The pictures coming especially the before /after shots . Great to see" anything can be done" when you restore something. Nice Job!

Wonderful job.  I figure if it hasn't failed by this time, don't replace it.  Those copper lines are a classic.  You don't see that kind of assembly processes anymore-takes to much time and money.   Everything now is in the interest at lowering the assembly time to make more money.  Hence, even big trucks are using more and more plastic lines and aluminum radiators with plastic end tanks that are clipped on (seen them even on a Peterbilt).  Save a restore as much as possible- you won't see that kind of quality build anymore.  Good Luck, Tomc
