sawz-all vs. radiator!

ok, so i finally find the time to get started on installing my SD intercooler in my obs. and while cutting some of the radiator support away with the sawz-all it skipped out and knicked the front of the radiator started leaking coolant instantly. it seems there is only one tiny hole where the tip of the blade hit. my question is, is there a way to repair this myself(maybe a radiator patch if there is even such thing?) i am trying to stay away from stop leak as i've heard that its bad news. is it do-able guys? or is it a done deal and i have to take it out and get it rebuilt, or just buy a new one? thanks for any knowledge on this. 'preciate it.

You should be able to solder it like you do with plumbing.

Be sure and CLEAN it real good so the solder will take and don't apply any more heat than it takes to get the solder flowing, or you will have a bigger hole.
