Leaky radiator

Today I noticed a couple drops of coolant on top of my coolant filter housing. It appears to be coming from the top of the radiator, at the seam between the aluminum and plastic. I have spare cardboard below my truck, for oil changes of other potentially messy projects that is soaked with coolant. So it has been doing this for a while. I added some coolant a month or so ago, praying it wasn't HG's, since I had NO symptoms. SO, on to the real question...is there any way to fix this? Or am I in the market for a new rad? I would love to install a Mishimoto but don't want to spend the $825. Is the one from Bulletproof a good second option? I want to get an all aluminum rad so I don't do this again. Anybody have good luck with another brand out there?
