What's a really good Radiator Support brand? Supplier?

The other day I removed the driver fender apron to replace it due to its shoddy patch job by the PO.  While I was at it MS suggested I replace the radiator support which I had considered, but I'm trying to avoid the WYIT monster.  But of course, I don't want to do the job half way.  So I'm now seriously considering it.  The radiator support does look relatively rough, especially the top rail.  There's some areas on the radiator support that looks like someone took sheet metal shears too and did some cutting to peel back some of the metal.  What are ya'lls thoughts on high quality radiator supports?  I don't want to put something cheapo and ill fitting.  Scott Drake?  Dynacorn?  Some other brand?

I used dynacorn with attached crossmember and weld through primer for my 66. I was very pleased with how it fit. This fit the best out of all the sheet metal I got for the car. I had good luck with their full convertible wheelhousings too. I have a totally unverifiable theory that has only worked twice, weld through primer on dynacorn has been nice. Every other piece of sheet metal has been garbage.

My 66 has dynacorn.  Much better quality than anything else I have seen.

I have to agree, Dynacorn is the way to go.
