Looking for a fan shroud to suit stock 120y radiator. Car is running a little hot for my liking and starts to overheat in traffic :/

In my experience, the fan shroud did nothing to solve the problem. Only replacing the radiator with one in like new shape, or a slightly bigger one, did

B110 330 x 344 x 32 mm
B210 330 x 344 x 32 mm
B210 330 x 462 x 33 mm with AC
B310 330 x 462 x 33 mm std (non-AC)

Nowadays the least expensive option is a cheap alumumum radiator -- brass & copper is very expensive. Some of the aluminum ones have a denser core, or thicker core, so they will cool better than the brass/copper

It's a new build, new water pump and new Gemini radiator. The radiator seems narrow and there's a large gap between the fan and radiator. Those aluminum raditors look a lot wider.

Then a shroud would probably help due to the gap

Another thing that might help a 1200 is blocking off the gaps between radiator and body
