    image.jpg Hi,

    Not too sure whether to post this in the decorating forum but I’ll try here first.

    I’ve had a new radiator fitted in my bay window. It was slightly larger than the old one which means that the pipes are entering the wall at the angle of the wall. I usually use talon radiator collars from screwfix to keep it all looking neat but these won’t work as they are on the join. Has anyone got any ideas on what I can use?

    I would just paint the pipe the same colour as the wall and it will blend in.

    What about running a 15mm HSS bit through a collar at an angle?

    Is that hep barrier pipe emerging from the wall and into the valve? If so, why are you worrying about prettying up the intersection with the wall? As @Hot&Cold wrote... A bit of matching paint and attention to detail will sort that out easily.
