Default 86, radiator grill cover fin(s) brackets

Hello All,
I'm looking for brackets that hold the slates(s)/fins(s) in place on the radiator cover for a '86 40' 8V92. They are the same brackets as on the curb side battery cover grill. Or suggestions on where to get alternative brackets to keep them in place, Concerned that one will actually fall off and possibly hit another vehicle.

Take a good one to an Air Conditioner place and have their Fab shop make what you need.

There is a "Salvage" unit around Jackson Tn. I will have do some searching to find the phone #. There also is 2 units at Colaw's RV Salvage in Mo.

Thanks Rick,
Another member mentioned using JB Weld to fix his (good to know that's an option). If you find the number for the salvage unit, pls let me know.

Rick,
Thanks for the number! Wouldn't by chance know the name of salvage yard would you?
no answer and a full voice mail box is what I received.

I just talked with Pete about this salvage. He tells me he has the unit in his yard but has not put it in inventory. Just had a new Grand baby is the story. He has a few members phone numbers on his desk and will call them however he did say he thought his wife may have lost one or two. I ask him to please call me when he was ready to sell and he promised me he would. Guys have shown him there is a market for these parts. We have to wait until he is ready to sell.

I finally took off my louvered door and installed some 1/8" by 3/4 inch aluminum strips (5 each) and drilled and safety wired each louver to them. I also used clear gutter sealant to secure both sides of the ends so they will not rattle and wear loose. It is really tight and quiet now! So much easier to wash them now without worrying about pushing them in. Have pics I can post later.

Thanks for the info Rick, and for doing the research. I'm sure he'll make a lot of people happy. How can I get on that list?

Bob, that sounds like it took a while to do. But a much better solution than what I have now.

Default Jackson, TN Salvaged Bird - Gone

Just called the salvage place outside Jackson, TN about the '86 PT he had for parts. He said he has sold it to someone else. Wouldn't tell me who, only saying he had no idea what they had in mind for it.

Phooey. I am in Jackson tonight was was going to run by tomorrow for some items.
