Who knows! It seemed to be the inlets and brackets that were covered in rust deposits so maybe the black coating has metallic content? According to the box it was manufactured over a year ago. I guess I could of cleaned it up and resprayed it but should that be necessary on a new product?
how could it be rusted there is no steel in it.
I purchased the all metal one from Mini Spares:

The quality was appalling. It was all rusted up and had damaged fins. I don't know if I just got a bad one or if they will all be the same. Anyway, sending that one back.
I guess my only choice now is an alloy Chinese one? Anyone got any recommended eBay ones?
The Minispares version is described as "all metal", that certainly to me means it's ... a metal radiator!
Has anyone ever approached a specialist rad manufacturer such as Radtec to get a quality radiator made?
