Default Modified 1992 Saturn Trike Cooling System

A couple of picks of the cooling system. Beware of the bargain parts stores. I bought a radiator for my daily driver, a 1995 S series. The core was noticeably thinner in cross section than the old one and since my AC is inop and I have no plans to fix it I decided to use it. Later I went to one of the older parts stores it town and bought the radiator for the Trike and it was a lot thicker in cross section. Both radiators were listed for a car with AC and Automatic.
The difference was $108 from the bargain store and $118 from the older store. I don't think I will pick one parts store over another but buyer beware and take a ruler with you and ask to see the replacement. I have noticed that once a car reaches a certain age you really have to be careful with the parts. A lot of the stuff from China is junk.

China? Junk parts?

Go buy 2 plain rotors, midgrade, and see if you can get to 10K mi without at least one warping. How do you combat this? Return them warped under warranty for another pair that will warp in the same amount of time.

Cost: Your time, labor, and annoyance.
