lets see, not bolts, and not zip ties.. looks like you will be using glue then...

in all seriousness, you need one of these: http://store.summitracing.com/...w=sku

It is a relatively high temp aftermarket fan mount kit from summit racing for $9..

goto autozone or advance auto and just tell them you need a package of zip ties that hold a fan onto the radiator. They come in a 4 pack, you slide them through the fan holes and throught the radiator, then on the other side you put a stopper that holds it in place.

My Porsche 944 has 'OEM' Zip ties that hold a hot radiator hose. 944 engine bays get notoriously hot, and they are 20 years old, original, and fine. Click the image to open in full size. Try it.
