Only I would get this annoyed over scrap metal.

    Not an hour after I got my huge $25.20 from scrap metal did I go over a block to our rental house where I have a truck parked. Only to find that my 1/2 a bed full of scrap radiators was diminished to only 6 left. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I've been saving junk radiator cores for over a year now, up until I had a full pickup truck load to bring in all at once. Now, someone decided that they would take half of my scrap for themselves.

    Not that stolen radiator cores is a big deal, but it's annoying thinking that I could have brought them in at any time, but I was intentionally waiting until I had a load... and now I'm back to only 6 cores when I had about 14.

    Todays profit: $25.20 scrap steel.
    Todays observed loss: Probably $25-$45 in stolen cores.

    At least no one unbolted and robbed the Dana 60 from the truck. I'll be doing that myself this week. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    25-45 in radiators? Your scrap guy is robbing you ha. I'd get more like 50-75 for a truck full of radiators I'd say.

    It was only half of half a load that got taken.
