Radiator repair

Welppp... From what I can tell a small rock nailed my radiator causing it to create a pinhole leak. Can this be repaired locally? Or am I better off just buying a new one? I don't want this leaking on the track again so it's pretty important the fix is permanent

R6 radiator btw

Your location says Missouri City, my guy is all the way up in Spring.
That said, any radiator shop should be able to fix it.

If you feel like trying your hands at fixing it, all you got to do is solder the leak shut. You might lose a row of cooling capacity, but it should still be good to go. Otherwise, you can save some money by uninstalling the radiator and take it to a radiator shop.
