Where can i find a fan shroud to fit my radiator?

I need a fan shroud, my car runs a bit hot idling and low speeds in traffic. Was looking at a universal fan shroud from Summit, but they only come in Chrome, and I dont like the look of chrome..

Here is a picture of my radiator, dont know what size it is off hand..But you get the idea..

If it were mine to fix I would be off to the local wrecking yard to find one that was close and rim it down to fit..

You could also consider making your own. Here's a fairly simple one I built for my Sedan Delivery. Go here for the step by step pictures and description of how it was built.

Thats cool!! Im currently running a Mechanical Fan, do you think going to an electric would work better? Keep in mind I have mechanical skills but can not weld or fabricate, so I would be purchasing whatever I used..lol
