I was wondering just how hot the car body would get this time of year. We do have a lot of sun, but it's not a really hot sun, and the temperatures rarely get above 75-80 degrees this time of year, and most days not even that warm.

All weekend the car was in the sun in my front driveway and the hood, top and rear actually reached 140 degrees. The side in the sun made it to 100 degrees and the side not facing the sun only made it to 70 degrees.

Might be a while doing this procedure! :rolleyes:

All I need are the pushrods and we can start the assembly of the 454 for the '68. :drool:
