need rad cradle for 99-03/4 F150 Toronto area

sadly the time has come to start looking for a rad cradle

mine's rotted - I found the lower driver's side rad mount rubber laying on the driveway on sunday morning

a good rot free one is needed and I'll probably need the front most sections of the inner fenders too so I can attach everything to my truck as the rust goes a little beyond just the rad cradle

leme know what you have guys .. if anything lol

I haven't been having much luck in the scrap yard , yet

rad is now sitting on the frame rails of the truck with about a two inch gap between the top mount points and the mount brackets

hope I find a rad cradle before I need a rad too

well I still need a rust free truck but I finally found a rad cradle
.. in Barrie , for 75 bucks , new never used
thank you kijiji ...

I found one on kijiji last year for 200 bucks , in Sudbury which was no help and all the listings here wanted 4-6 hun
the listing for rock auto is the best I saw and the shipping wouldn't be to bad either but I just scooped this for a little better then the US list price without shipping if you add the 50 bucks I spent in gas to get to Barrie and back on Friday
lol yeah it was the wrong day to go north but it wasn't too bad mid afternoon

there's a gorgeous southern box in ottawa.. it's even white too

that's next on the hit list along with a cheep used mig welder - I've found a few of those already too

also found stainless steel brake lines on ebay - seller is moderndaymuffler

those are probably next on the hit list as I tryed to install my hotchkiss rear swaybar .. but the friggin axle vent wasn't going to play ball as the end of the brake hose from the frame is seized to the vent preventing it from unthreading without ripping tha axle lines off

Gentle heat like that gotten from a mapgas/oxy set will loosen those lines right up.

probably but I've already juggled my old rusty lines as much as I dare

back when I did the rear drop 2 summers ago I pushed the frame line up just slightly
I thought I was finished and sat in the truck to rest and I hear drip drip drip on the floor
sure enough an hour or two after the fact enough brake fluid had collected on the frame to start dripping

so doing the lines now is way up top on the do list
