Bugeye radiator - any suggestions pls?

Hi all, needing to purchase a new radiator for the bug, any links or advice on where to purchase would be great - also need two new rear standard dampers.

Thanks in advance - Ben

Hi Bob, Im positive their is no cap on the rad itself. All I can see from above is the mesh type material. I ll check tomorrow and post a pic, thanks for the input as would be gutted with an incorrect part. BTW - why are some fitted with a cap? (excuse lack of knowledge)!!

Got one for each of our cars from this place. Had 1 of them 2 years and the other a year - no probs. Basic replacement part but very cheap. Mechanic also said it was a very easy swap. Also do a full aluminium one but that's obviously more expensive - but still very cheap.

Found these the cheapest for shockers (had them 2 years):

Scoobydeux - Thankyou for taking the time to reply, I had spotted that Rad on the auction site. Looks the way forward, will confirm this am that their is no filler cap on the Rad. Shocks looking a good option also.
