Chevelle502-your braces are on the way to ya! Here's a pic comparing the original 1/4" braces to the newly prepped 3/8" ones-I dipped each end and am including new hardware-stainless allen button headed screws w/washers and new black clips, too.

Sure-I mocked them up using my 1980 Monte as the demo radiator support-I'll put a set on it and get some pics up. The 3rd gen Montes didn't have braces from the factory but the stock supports still have the provisions to install them. Hopefully I can get some pics in the morning and I can post them up.

The braces at the bottom are from a 86 442 and they measure 32" on center which is where the measurements for the 3/8" are at now. There is slightly less than 1/2" total adjustment allowed which unless your support has suffered some kind of serious deformation, is plenty.
