    Radaitor repair shop

    Anyone know of a good radiator shop along the Wasatch front? Preferably in the south end of the Salt Lake Valley, but I will go further if the shop is really good. I have a leak in mine and I do not want to purchase a new one. While it is there I might as well get it re-cored I think. Thanks
