Need center radiator parts

Well I'm ready to add a center radiator to my base 986. I have already picked up a 99 996 front cover and the radiator. I need the brackets, bolts, speed nuts and rubber duct. Anyone out there have any or all these parts please let me know. Thanks Monty

Center radiator parts

Hi Monty,
I have the parts you are looking for, but, yes, there is always a but, the lower portion of the radiator bracket is bent from running over a small boulder during an off road shunt. As you probably know, the bracket is thin steel. It bends easily. This bracket is usable, but may need a bit of tweaking. If this is something you can accept, I'll snap some photos.

In total, I have the following;
-Center radiator from a different car in very good conditon - I understand you already have this,
-Center radiator two part mounting bracket with 4 mounting bolts, and the two speed nuts and bolts (condition as described above.)
-Center radiator rubber air duct (I have two). Interestingly they both carry the same part number, but one has rubber tits that go into the mounting bracket, while the other duct has holes that would require a fastener to attach the duct to the bracket. Given the condition of the lower bracket, I think the second duct might be the better choice as the rubber tits are not substantial enough to stay in place due to the less than perfect fit of the bent bracket.
-New center radiator hoses - you didn't mention these in your request, so I'm assuming you already have them. No clamps are included.
- A front bumper plastic center radiator opening. This too came off the crashed vehicle and I can't fully determine if it is usable, but at a minimum, it would be an excellent template if you need to cut an opening in the bumper cover.

I had intended this to be a complete center radiator kit.

Let me know if/how you want to proceed.

Thanks,
Joe

Joe; Thanks for the quick reply! Very much appreciated, but..... hmmm where did I hear that???. I was out today and found the brackets, so now down to the rubber duct, bolts and speed nuts, the hoses I have to fabricate since the base hoses are smaller diameter than the S or 996.
So I guess what I'm saying is well, if the rubber duct with the tits is available give me a PM!

For those following along with this thread, I offered the duct shipped for $69. Monty thought for the difference, he might just go with a new part. So, if anyone else is interested, it is still for sale. The least expensive I've seen on eBay is $82.
