Don't Cha' Hate it

When your part (a radiator) comes in and you only look in the top of the box instead of inspecting the whole thing?

Then 2 weeks later you flush your system so it's all spiffy clean for the new radiator and get to work removing the old one.

Voila' the new rad comes out of the box!
OH CR#P! some fins are bent and even a tube is bent. The side mounts are bent in from shipping dropping it sideways,
Then the kicker ..... you see tranny fluid dripping out of the tranny cooler port!

Summit doesn't have anymore in stock! But they got Cold Case to drop ship a (hopefully) NEW one to me. Hmm, will it go out today? UPS behind the scenes shipping works 24/7 so it would get far over the weekend maybe arrive Mon or Tue. Or if it doesn't hit the truck today it will be later in the week, probably when I'm busy.
Young enough to learn ... too old to remember.
