Couldn't find one either, I had to make mine out of some sheet.

Trying to think, someone recently posted a picture of theirs, might have been stainless. Can't remember what the thread was about, don't thing it was that, just in the picture

Here's the one I was thinking of. Mine looks sort of similar (No pictures yet, just mocked it all up before I took everything apart )

I think what he has comes with the fan and alum rad .. It may be I may have to make some air intake to come around shroud and point into engine compartment.

This is the one I meant


Post 11 he says he made it out of SS.

Mines basically the same, couple of bends, mounts up to where the brackets bolt (upper)

It doesn't show well in that picture but the stainless piece goes right up to the foam seal (just the angle it goes back down at makes it look black)
Mine is similar and goes under the foam
