Dear All,
I was wandering how you go about adapting the Radiator in Cold weather to get a decent water Temp.

Provided you have the proper thermostat installed, you should not need to take any measures to keep the temperature up, but if you do have problems, blanking off the lower one -third of the radiator with a sheet of cardboard should help

Hey Chris, do you remember the time when cars were fitted with a radiator muff in order to keep the temperature up during winter?

Paul Buckley : I do indeed remember radiator muffs . We had one for my Mother's Austin Somerset. Superior beings had remote controlled radiator blinds which operated with drawstrings ; and of course RR had swivelling vertical slats !!
