Default WTB (Wanted To Borrow) a radiator.

I'm building a sand rail found here... https://www.miataturbo.net/showthrea...t=48927&page=3
...and I need a Miata radiator for fitment testing.

Is anyone in/near northern Illinois (Lake Villa/Lindenhurst/Gurnee) that has a Miata radiator laying around? It can be broken/leaking for all I care but I'd buy it if it's in decent shape. I need one to test fit in the sand rail. I found measurements but it doesn't help me figure out the locations for radiator mounts. Eventually it will get an aftermarket aluminum one but I don't want to dish out the money if it won't fit.
I have a customer's car here but it's not my place to start removing things for any reason other then being asked to do so by the customer.

I'll buy you lunch at Sammies!

I wouldn't bother, get much cheaper non miata aluminum one with a more normal mounting format.

If I knew what would fit. If I order a radiator per my dimensions it'll cost me. Miata's are cheap and common and it looks like it'll fit but I'd like to try it first. If it'll work out then I'll get an aluminum one for a Miata.
