Reconditioning a Lotus Esprit radiator

 To the left you can see a breakdown of the stages involved in the re core of this Lotus Esprit radiator.

 The sorry looking radiator arrives and we dismantle the frame, remove the tanks and shot blast all of the parts back to bare metal.

 The new core is ordered, which in this case is a nice thick 3 row version to replace the old 2 row core.

 One end of the frame is corroded so badly that it needs to be completely replaced with a new one. This kind of job is never a problem as we have an engineering workshop at our disposal for the fabrication of metal work.

Once all of the parts have been cleaned they can be re-assembled to make the nice reconditioned radiator shown at the bottom.
