    I'd do the bottom 1/3rd of the rad if I think it needs help, on a TDi the oil cooler lives inside the Rad, right hand end tank, so just be aware of that too.

    To be fair, yes you could make a better one. But, as already said, it serves it's purpose for the few weeks/months it's needed and can be wiped off easy.

    ...and let's be honest, it almost looks factory fit :)

    Oh you have spoiled it now suggesting I remove it. My pride and joy all the training I did all the skills I developed to be able to make a demister.
    Actually I made it 2 years ago in the middle of winter so that I could at least see to use the door mirror but it worked well for a lash up.
    I have since replaced it with a piped system and the warm air now comes through a vent in the side panel of the dash. Looks much better.

    Now, now... don't take my words out of context, I said
    By doing that I was leaving the decision in your super-DIY capable hands.

    I didn't say "remove that thing when summer comes" - that would have been a clear instruction to remove it :p

    Very nice indeed. How did you connect it and where did you buy the parts? More than £6 this time I guess :)

    Far away from you!!
    For the passenger window wiping could you get a mop and cut down the handle then just flail it about at the side windows as you drive? Would prob work for the rear window if your screen heater is bust.....
