Default Radiator refurb or replacement

Hi Folks
I need to get the Main Rad on the quattro repaired. Or find a decent replacement.

Deepest darkest Darsit is somewhat lacking in practical old time skills, based on my recent experiences. Like a decent radiator repair shop. Everyone I've spoken to seems determined to source brand new rad from any other quattro, and bodge it, rather than repair.

So-
If you know of a good reliable place to send mine to be recored,
or
Know of a good used, or new one

Please let me know. I don't mind travelling to deliver it/collect it. Or posting it. But recommendations of places you've actually used would be appreciated.

Is the main rad the same as the rad on the Cq, I bought a new rad last year locally, If you PM me your vehicle reg I'll contact them.

If you still need suggestions after the post above me, I used these folk. They did an excellent job when recoring our Hillman SuperMinx.
