I'm back at work now, after our summer break, so have less daylight hours to play with this.. But at least its warm here!

P.S. - I'm NOT actually going to stick cardboard in front of the radiator - there's too many other things up there that need air flow, like the intercooler, oil cooler etc.
Right, I didn't think about the oil cooler and intercooler...
