It doesnt matter if its my car or one at the junkyard. Its like the front plastic that covers the radiator gives off almost a fiberglass fiber.

Every time I have gotten on the radiator support to do anything I get itchy forearms.

I thought it was just old cars that had been exposed but since I did a radiator replacement yesterday I found out the same thing happens with mine.

Must lay a towel or something down before touching it and I still had what looked like a good rash on me when I was done.

had to scrub the crap out of my arms to get the itch to go away.

just like fiberglass insulation.

It is a fiberglass core support not plastic.
I get it all the time.
