It is as if the coating got soft while hot.

Come on man, Krylon flat black, 6 bucks a can.

Wait what the hell, you boiled the water and let it sit in there? NO ONE is saying to boil water dude.

Of course don't use boiling water noone said that.

Also even though the components are new there might be residues left. So use vinegar+water it won't hurt.

I did not use boiling hot water. I boiled some water. Then l let it sit for about 10 min in the kettle. At that point i poured it into the rad. I would guess would be around 60-65C or so. Thats why I suggested not to use too hot water. My tap water gets close to 60 C at max.
