Mr. Lucas's technology (oh he of the flaming wiring) is already so
effective at turning electricity into heat that it seems one could
simply pass the rear wiring bundle under the passenger seat and happily
warm up one's significant other.
One of my colleagues tells the tale of his old Austin Mini which
apparently had wiring between the headliner and the metal top. One
winter so much warmth was being generated in the wires that the car had
a large section of top that was always melted free of snow as soon as
the car started up.

How much current do they draw, and will you need to upgrade your
alternator and or wiring?
Modern cars have 100+ amp alternators, while our cars are 25-30(?)
amperes. Seems like a
significant project if one is to keep the prince of darkness at bay
while using them.
