    I am looking to put my full radiator cover on my 1991. The radiator mounting is stock. I was wondering... can I remove the radiator mounting brackets on the top of the radiator and chuck em... or are the absolutely critical to secure the stock radiator and fan (lack of) set up?

    Thanks.

    Will it make the radiator sloppy tomatoes?

    there are better ways to secure it then the stock rad mounts. I've seen several examples out around

    maybe it's me but I dont see a piece that actually holds the radiator in place in the Scott Rod piece. It appears to only cover the opening between the radiator support and the front bumper cover.

    correct, for the scotrod piece you will still need a radiator hold down

    I don't mind the rivets as long as they aren't some God awful hex bolts.

    I got the black cover set... so you must keep the bulky radiator arms? Damnit... The cover doesn't fit over them...

    I wish they made these for my 95. I could really use one without the latch cut out
