I am so impressed with the abilities of people to restore instead of replace.
I had several pinholes in my cooler. I was told by my local vendor (who I trust) that due to the way these are constructed, from memory bonded fins not welded, that repairs were a hit or miss thing if they would last.

I opted for a new ($1,000) cooler). Given the price and ease of replacement in the car perhaps its wise to give the repair a shot first, but keep an eye on it.
