Default Cold Case radiator

Bought a 2 row aluminum radiator from Cold Case for my Pontiac motored 67 Firebird. It’s a good replacement for the 4 row brass one I’ve had since early 1990s. With the brass one, it started to overheat when stopped this year, likely the result of my failure to change out the coolant with any kind of regularity. The radiator had a dent when it arrived, but no leaks. The radiator fits, mostly. The rad is spaced a bit further back into the engine bay, maybe half an inch.
The “clips” that hold the lower end of the radiator shroud are not as cool as stock. The stock ones are pushed open, and hold the shroud against the radiator. The ones on the Cold Case are aluminum, so they lack the spring tension to keep the shroud from wiggling a bit. Not a big deal, I think.

A good value for made in America, aluminum radiator. Bought it through Classic Industries, for a discount.
Engine is around 340 horses.
