In dressing up your old car for the

can Motorist, the cellular part of tho
radiator should be painted not with
the often-used aluminum paint but
with lamp black which radiates heat
more readily and does not assume the
dead look which aluminum paint takes
on after It has been heated for a num
ber of times.
A very good radiator paint, accord
ing to American Motorist, is made up
by stirring about A ounces of lamp
biack In a mixture of 3 ounces of boil
ed llnsoed oil anil one ounce of tur
pentine. A sprayer, such as often used
for spraying body polish on the car,
makes an excellent device for apply
ing the radiator paint to the insides of
lthe cells which cannot very well he

CARE NEEDED WHEN
It has long been customary to clean
gasoline engine cylinders with long
handled scraping tools, the cutting
edges of which are hardened. In scrap
ing a cylinder In this manner, it is
important to have the piston in the
uppermost position of its sweep, since
otherwise the scraping tool is likely to
slip into the bore of the cylinder and
injure the smooth surface of the cyl
inder wall. American Motorist.
