Fan shroud Fabrication help needed

I have me engine compartment all chromed out and need a good allum. or stainless shroud. I have looked at the ones JEG's and Summit have and they look cheap. Plus they do not cover the entire radiator. I have a regular flex fan mounted to the water pump. Does anyone know of someone who can fabricate a shroud for me the will fit my Be Cool radiator and look good? Currently with the Be Cool, I am having no overheating issues, just want to install a shroud. Looking for polished finish.

At the moment, the radiator is the original 21" 2 row Harrison. So far, in 40 degree weather, the temp guage is right on 180, so we'll see... A northern or summit alluminum unit is on the wishlist, sometimes good things come to those who wait.



Rocket, every detail of this car is here for the looking, ya jus gotta find it. You guys have been with me thru every bolt and nut. Someday I'll get to updating my website and put it all there.



The shroud was custom made my a guy in Maryland named Wade Mahafery. Found him tx to TC, of course. here's one of the posts on it https://www.camaros.net/forums/showthread.php?t=57551 There were a few other rposts when it was being designed, search ain't pulling them up tonight. Guy has the pattern and specs and can make them up for any 21" core SBC, just need to know short or long water pump, cost was around $250.
