Here's my attempt to use the Breeze upper radiator shroud to make something that looks like an original AC-style radiator top mount pin. I rolled the edge of the shroud so that it could help cover the top of the radiator a bit more, then added a bent piece of scrap aluminum to look like the support arm. For the pin, I just used a piece of rigid tubing that I turned down a bit on the lathe, then cross drilled it for a brass cotter pin. I'll have everything powder coated at some point, except for the pin and the fender washer below the cotter pin - that should give just a bit of contrast.

Total cost - less than $3 bucks.
