Copper tubing, and attach as many small plates of aluminum or copper woruld be best... All your teally trying to do is to increase surface area as much as possible without adding to much mass to a set of copper tubes for the water to flow through.

$20 will buy you a heatercore. You will end up spending so much more than that on trying to make a rad. The heatercore will be much better than the home made rad.<br><br>
That being said, if you choose to do it anyways do it like pbasil said.<br><br>
I just noticed you're in portugal. If you want to send me some pay pal for the cost I'll buy you a heatercore at an auto parts shop here and ship it to you.

Snerp's right just get a heater core it will be a lot cheaper and easier in the long run..It would be fairly difficult to build a low restriction and efficent rad even if you wanted to spend a lot of money on one..
