[Spridgets] Radiator dent removal

So I guess I go to the radiator repair guy and say "Moss sells a replacement radiator like this for $320."
"Can you resurrect mine for less than this?"

I can't imagine it can be done for so little.   But heck, I'm not a radiator guy, but I have done my share of striping,
brazing, pounding, and painting.

Anybody out there buy an early radiator from Moss?   What is the quality like?  Are they re-manufactured originals?

Frank, yes, I had thought of Bondo.  But I also have a little "blue encrustation"
in one spot on the fins, so full workover/replacement is probably in order, no matter how I look at it.

Daniel, agreed, the Wizard cooling aluminum radiator is awsome. 

When the photo above was taken it was $400. But it's now $535, (see ebay item 200286395042, http://tinyurl.com/dbpoo4)

and if you recall from our earlier conversation I'm "shooting for" this type of look:

FWIW I tried to contact a radiator guy in NE Philadelphia today.  All I got was the message machine.
He may have been in mourning, as we sadly lost Harry Kalas today (Iconic Phillies broadcaster)

Thanks to all in advance...and in retrospect.

Get a radiator shop to take it apart and then you can beat it out.  Might as well rod it out at the same time.
 Looks to be too sharp a dent to "pull" out.  probably cost the same as the dent puller kit anyway.
