I know I have three old used electric irons out in the garage, they all heat-up, and that might be my next DIY project. The cost is covered, one for the radiator, one for the engine oil pan area, one for the E.. block, one more needed for the windshield, relays, heavy duty circuit-breaker, plus a remote/timer/sequencer. Then with plenty of fabrication(trial effort). Got-ta have a cord, with glow light, and be ready for the cold season. LOL!

I have one, but have never needed to use it. It doesn't get very cold around here.
