Mexico to the rescue

My Spirit RT is in need of a new radiator, as the factory pos with plastic tanks is shot. I've been having a hell of a time finding one, and thought I was going to either have to adapt something or pay big bucks to have one custom made. But then I found a guy on the Az/Mexican border who deals with a shop in Mexico who makes all metal direct replacement radiators for the car. 250 shipped for a better quality then stock replacement. Viva la Mexico!

I ordered a minirocker switch off the Amazon. Its apparently coming from China with a estimated delivery date of July 2nd - July 24th. I really hope they put it on a sampan quickly and paddle their asses over here sometime sooner.

Got the new radiator yesterday. Perfect condition and very high quality. Pulled the old one out today and it was quite rotten. Hopefully will be back on the road tomorrow
