    I'm looking to get my engine bay looking snazzy with a lot of "newness" to it and my existing bracket to the power steering pump and air conditioning compressor is looking badly worn. It has a lot of engine bay and road grime on it and I've tried pressure washing it off to no avail.

    Besides a wrecking yard (which I'd rather not go through), is there a source for OEM-style brackets for the A/C compressor and P/S pump? I'd really like to have some that are chrome if possible.

    I've tried looking online for one and the ones I see are for the older style 302 arrangement commonly seen in Fox-body Mustangs, etc.

    Same goes for the alternator/tensioner. I repainted that one (and cleaned it up good) but I'd like them to match.

    If it's aluminum you can polish it, steel you can get chromed, or just clean and paint/powder coat any color you want.
