Pontiac Fiero Radiator
Anyone have any thoughts or has anyone done the Pontiac Fiero aluminum radiator upgrade while having a 258? Got a line on one for about $25 and my radiator looks........old.

I've had a few Fieros and currently have an 88 GT T top. They are twenty five years plus old. The Fiero radiators I have had go bad, it was the plastic side tanks which separated from the radiator core. I replaced one with a new/aftermarket one for $125.00.
Why not just get a replacement CJ radiator ? I would hate to modify another type to fit only to have it go bad later.

Well I was hoping to get a few more opinions on this but I guess since they only made like 300,000 fieros (wiki), experiences probably would be limited. I was hoping to do this on el cheap side. $25 beats $200 and I kinda dig doing mods that are "custom". Since they have plastic tanks like you said and go bad, I guess I'll stay away from this one.

It's your Jeep, do as you wish, but it seems to me doing unnecessary "custom" work is like suffering from a self inflicted wound.:rolleyes:

I had my old looking radiator reworked by a local company. They pressure tested it, flushed it and painted it a nice heat resistent black to boot. Was about € 40,- , so around $ 50,- . Which, in my opinion, beats buying a new one for four times that price, or even just buying any used radiator...
