  • Really enjoyed this video. Get rid of the blue masking tape (or use in the house for painting rooms) and get 3M green masking tape. It is a little more expensive but vastly better when it comes to keeping lines from leaking.

  • Tip one for soldering add the heat for a while take the heat off touch or soldered to the crack if it sucks it around the crack it’s hot enough if not keep heating also while checking for leaks you can use soap and bubbles this is coming from years of experience doing plumbing and air line repair

  • Hi Matt, great channel, just a tip from a 70 yo ex toolmaker who's done a bit of soldering, try a big soldering iron instead of the torch, put the heated iron in the vicinity with some flux and a dob of solder, when it's the right temp it will flow into all those cracks, soon as it does remove the iron PDQ, get the 300w 7/8" iron.

  • Solder requires CLEAN surfaces to adhere to you got no hope of getting that to become a good repair like that and the flux you are using is a waste of time you need acid based self cleaning flux for that plus wire wool to clean the worst of it off

  • I don’t mean to be critical as I enjoyed the video, but at 13:00 it won’t flow/seal well doing it like that. You need to get the job hot enough to melt the soLder (I’m British, we pronounce it properly and use the L 🤣). The parent metal needs to be hot enough so that you should be able to add the solder directly to it without the flame still being on it. The way you’re doing it there you’re just melting the solder with the flame and dripping it onto the job. This is why it’s not flowing into the cracks.

  • The weldin on the radiator sheild and support was a decent job matt!!! I did notice when your doing your spots and they are blackening that quickly and the sparks poppin that loud... Just kick the amps down about 15 to 20 more amps, And listen to it again till you hear a nice steady sizzlin instead of the loud little pops & you should be golden.. It was just a bit too hot (Too much amperage for that gauge of steel).... Cheers......

  • I'm must be weird but I find sandblasting strangely relaxing. As long as it's not hot and the air is plentiful I don't find suiting up that bad. In a glove box cabinet I find it quite enjoyable. Seeing the results of your work relatively quickly is satisfying too. The whole process ticks a lot of boxes for me.

  • Consider cleaning the spot better before fluxing. It didn't look like the flux etched well and that may have led to your flow issues.

  • Yeah that lettering is a PITA. Next time paint the letters and background then pin stripe the edge. It will give you the same raised edge but over the transition the and will cover the feathered edge the tape leaves. Looked like cheap “implement” paint. You may want to spend a little more money on some paint with UV stabilizer or clear with something that will provide UV protection other wise you’ll lose all the color in a year or two. Man you don’t have good luck with radiators. That’s like close to 1200 bucks I’ve seen you spend. I Tried to fix one from an 8N, ended up just buying one. Keep up the good work!!!
