As you can see, the original radiator support on our HJ Monaro build was badly rusted out. Reproduction radiator supports aren't produced and most originals suffer from the same problem. So we were left with little choice but to repair it. With Roland currently overseas, the job fell to our second-year fabrication apprentice, Trent. Now this is by no means a straightforward job as the radiator support is comprised of multiple stamped sheet metal pieces all spot welded together to form a single component. Trent did an excellent job of the repairs, displaying skills well beyond those expected of someone entering the second year of their training.
