Default Radiator Blocking

I made an aluminum cover to fit over the entire oil cooler. The aluminum plate is riveted to a piano hinge and connected to a cable so I can open it or close it in flight.
I'm thinking on making the same thing for the incoming cooling air for the engine because when it is below zero Fahrenheit the engine only gets up to about 125 degrees.
