Repairing a leaking all-metal radiator? 200 1989

1989 244DL - LH 2.4 w/EGR

Seven and a half years ago I bought and installed an IPD Heavy Duty 3-row all metal radiator, partly for the extra capacity in my hot tropical summers, and partly for the ability to repair them. Unfortunately now it has sprung a leak. I haven't spotted the leak, but I just replaced both main cooling hoses and I'm still getting a little damp spot in the driveway and the bottom of the core support. I've always used Zerex g05 Coolant in it.

I'm wondering how to go about getting it repaired. Can I just pull the rad and take it to a radiator shop? Is it worth it? Is there some way I can fix it without welding equipment? I'd rather not just replace it, because I can't seem to find the HD radiators anywhere anymore.

Any suggestions?
