CLAIM

1. The ornamental design for a support for a fan shroud, as shown and described.

Description:

FIG. 1 is a top, front, left isometric view of an embodiment of an ornamental design for a support for a fan shroud;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view of the support of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a left side elevational view of the support of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a bottom plan view of the support of FIG. 1;

FIG. 5 is a top plan view of the support of FIG. 1; and,

FIG. 6 is a rear elevational view of the support of FIG. 1.

The ornamental design that is claimed is shown in solid lines in the drawings. The broken lines in the drawings are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design. Any dash-dash broken lines in the drawings are included to illustrate unclaimed surfaces or environment of the claimed design. Any dash-dot-dash-dot broken lines in the drawings are included to define unclaimed boundaries of the claimed design. Certain portions of the drawings between the pairs of generally parallel, jagged dash-dot-dot-dash broken lines are broken away to indicate that those portions of the claimed ornamental design have indeterminate lengths. Such pairs of jagged, dash-dot-dot-dash broken lines themselves form no part of the claimed design, and aspects of the embodiments that may be visible between the jagged lines have been removed for clarity, it being understood that, for each embodiment, the design along such removed aspects is a continuous extension of the design on either side of such removed aspects. Right side views are excluded from the drawings, as they are substantially identical to corresponding left side views of the claimed ornamental design, as provided in FIG. 3. Similarly, top, front, right isometric views of the claimed ornamental design are excluded from the drawings, as they are substantially identical to corresponding top, front, left isometric views, as provided in FIG. 1.
