It's to dam cold outside, you will never get to temp with that outside temperature, leave the cardboard on and she will come up to temp it will take a while...

RADIATOR NEED TO BE FLASH ALSO REPLACE OR REMOVE THERMOSTAT.

Thing is that there's very low temperature from heaters if cardboard isn't there
