I have a possible solution that may only work during the day.

I have used ambient temperature plates in my refrigerated keg setup for some time now. Basically they are plates that when powered will either maintain a 20 degree cooler air temp or 20 degree hotter air temp depending on which way its switched. I would suggest gutting a couple of those coolers and attaching those plates to the sides of your radiator and powering it with solar panels, unless you want it to draw power from your battery all the time.

Just an idea to spark further investigation ...
