Radiator Leak

Well after temporarily rigging my dash to the frame I decided to finally take a break from the wiring. I added coolant to engine and found a leak in the front left hand corner weld of the radiator. Its right at the point of the weld where the "puddle" meets parent metal. Is this repairable or do I have to replace it? Looks like I actually captured a drop falling with the pic...lol

Is that the new FFR aluminum radiator that came with the kit? If so I would get them to send you another one. Bad to have to weld on a new one before even hitting the road for the first time.

Yes it is the new one that came with the complete kit. I'm not the original kit purchaser though. I bought the kit complete un-started and unopened from someone else. Its worth a try....I'll call them.
