What great comments and helpful leads. On the concours front, I did get a reasonably high score, but did indeed loose points for those wheels, as well as my adapted air cleaner with dual snorkels. Phil may be able to tell you score, as he is a captain leader and will have access to them. I may enter next year, in which case I will get the old Bundt wheels refurbished, and I can re-install my old air cleaner.
No hot starting issues with the car. She always starts on the button. This high temperature thing may be pointing to a failing viscous fan, I shall certainly be mentioning it when the car goes in for service. I can remember as a child my father employing the windows down and heater on trick. Given he was a mechanic by trade, I think this really does work, but only as a temporary measure. The radiator was recored when we did the major body works, and all the hoses are new. So no issue there.
Lucas, off the top of my head, I think it is the accumulator that can give hot starting issues, it may be worth it to substitute this part, as the new one may be a dud. You'll need to look in the manual, it will give you a check list of items that will relate to hot starting issues.
So, I should be able to report back on the relay subject at some stage, and we'll see if everything works as intended.
