    Can anybody highly recommend a good radiator shop for full service work, I'm looking for anything around North Jersey or within an hour or so. Looking for a place that you would trust to do the job right, thanks for any help.

    If you want to cross the bridge to New York, Port Chester Radiator is worth the trip. I've been using them for over 20 years for countless radiator and gas tank mods and repairs. Great work. He does everything from high end ferraris to scooter gas/oil tanks. Rick is the man 914-939-3881

    I know it's not in Jersey either... but SurhSC, myself and my family have always used Middletown Radiator, in Middletown, PA.... they are a small shop, honest, and do excellent work the old and right way... PM one of us if you need contact info.

    Joe,

    Did you ever deal w/ Ayers' radiator on Rt. 46 just north of Belvadere (sp??)? My dad had some real nice work done by them. It was years ago, but I'm assuming they are still there. They are right next door to Ayers' autobody.

    South Jersey (Forked River) but worth the trip:
    http://www.customautoradiator.com/

    they've done some mods/custom stuff for me in the past that worked well....think the guy's name is Mark
     
  6. I had some custom stuff built at Haldon Radiator by River Rd across the river from the end of RT20. Don't know if the same people operate it as it was a few years back but its still there.

    Right on rt 46 east in Lodi right after the Mazda dealer and right before the Hess station.

    I believe its called Lodi Radiator.

    Is that Hawthorne Radiator on Lincoln Ave? They are still there and I have used them in the past, but I don't think they are doing automotive any more.

    Joe, K's in Plainfield is good and is quick too. Just told Ryan to use them for his gas tank.

    Thanks guy's I'm sure I should be able to come up with a good one out of the bunch, we were so use to the same shop for so many years we really didn't have anywhere after the guy retired.
