Hey man your set up looks really good, but like the others stated you just need the bottom shroud. I had a 68 big block camaro with a stock 2 row radiator, and I custom built a really tight fitting/sealing shroud out of aluminum, and the car never got over 180 even on the hottest days. You may even want to try removing the electric fan so it doesnt impede air flow through the front once your shroud is on there. Your mechanical fan should do the job. Do you have a coolant recovery bottle? these are a great help in eventually purging any trapped air.

The distance the fan is from the radiator will also have an affect on its efficiency. You might need some fan spacers to get it close enough I believe that it should be 1/2" from the core should be good. You can get it closer but this is a safe distance to provide good pull through the radiator. This will also help if you can't find that bottom of the shroud.

If you have to ask why.. Rolling Eyes

It is a major POS

Major flow restriction too small and paper.

It should a high flow K&N or similar type, be as big and tall as possible.

think of it as holding your nose closed, breathing through a Mcdonalds straw and trying to run on a treadmill.
