    Thanks. I used that technique to get the old one out. It was very wobbly, though, and fell to one side. (Didn't matter since it was already cracked.)

    The new radiator is so light and delicate. I don't think I should hug it.

    Farrar,

    Does your car not have the bleed hose nipple welded to the aluminum coolant pipe on the passenger side? I see a splice coupler with fitting sticking out of it.

    There was a certain person who went around saying that the crumple tubes needed to be strengthened, and wouldn't listen to anyone who disagreed.

    The crumple tube is there to save your life in a collision - by crumpling. Strengthening it like that prevents it from doing it's job.

    I'm sorry to see that someone did that to your car!

    It'll _probably_ be fine, but it almost definitely didn't need to be done.
