Re: REFLECTOR: keeping warm

On long desents from high altitude I can keep reasonably warm if I use both my exhaust shroud heater along with my oil cooler heater.  I put an extra large shroud on three exhaust stacks which puts out a hot blast of air in cruise, and comfortable amount of heat in decent as long as the airspeed is kept up.
