New floor, now radiator too high
Despite a whole mess of rug and shims under the cast iron behemoth beforehand, after I installed the slate floor the radiator now sits too high. The supply pipe comes out of the base molding so it won't move up. Other than removing some foot material, is there an offset adapter I can put between the rad and supply (an el with compression end) to lose some height? I'm about 3/8" high. This is 1 1/2" pipe and I have about 8" I can slide before the vent hits the wall.
