theres room, its just a matter of taking off all that crap on the front support. ive taken a 90 radiator for a 89 i had, it took about 90 minutes to remove donor, drive across town, install in mine.one thing to add... dont use WD-40 on any car. ever. if you need a lubricant, use a lubricant, if you need a penetrant use a penatrant. WD-40 does a halfass job of both. P'Blaster is the BEST penetrant. in the rainforrest (where I live) we see alot more rusted parts, so i know.

The most difficult part is when you have rusty transmission cooler lines. Get a flare wrench that fits your fittings. It's like a box wrench with a little space for the line to go through. Use plenty of WD-40 and gradually work the fitting back and forth until you can turn it freely without twisting the line.
