The KAT-1 clone should work (Serotec has this also).  We would use BD 
Pharmingens Armenian hamster antiMouse CD54 (iCAM), negative control would 
be Armenian hamster IgG, Group1, kappa as the negative IgG control. BD 
Pharmingen has a photo available in catalog and probably on website.  This 
antibody will bind more than just vascular tissue, it also detects 
lymphocytes, high endothelial venules (HEV), epithelial cells, macrophages 
and dendritic cells.

Beware, you may NOT get staining after paraformaldehyde fixation.  Read the 
data sheet from the website for fixation recommendations.

Acetone 4C for 10 min should work, and for better morphology, acetone 75 ml 
/ absolute ethanol 25 ml, fix overnight air dried frozen sections from 
fresh tissue for 5 min at room temperature, then go directly from this 
fixative to rinse buffer, 3 changes.
