aluminum radiator mounting

I am planning on buying an aluminum radiator from jegs for my 350 swap. The ones they sell do not have any mounts, I was wonder how most people mount them.

I purchased some slotted 90 degree from Home depot...1/8 thick I believe,
and then used my angle grinder where i needed to.

I bought a cheapie off ebay...don't recall the dimensions..it was for a CJ7 with a V8 ...3 core,
I' ve had it in for about 6 months now...works fine - runs around 180 in stop and go traffic,
runs about 150-160 on the highway...cooled by a 16" electric fan.
