Good day friends. Was there ever a discussion on how to manage the under bonnet (hood) heatsoak in our models? I have noticed after an hour drive at constant 120 to 130kph that the hood (bonnet) was cool to the touch, but after 10 min of standing (switched off) the hood was extremely hot to the touch. Can we discuss some solutions please?

I forget exactly what car is was but I owned one in the past that turned the radiator fan on and let it run for a couple of minutes after shutdown. That helped cool everything.
So maybe someone could build a timer circuit to add on our cars to do the same. I would assume it would go through a relay to activate it when the key is turned off. Then the timer circuit turns it off after a minute or two.
