I stuck a thermometor up there yesterday afternoon and within 15 min it was over 148deg! It errors after that so who knows how fugin hot it gets up there! theres absolutly no ventalation in there so im thinking of running an attic fan up there or something cause the garage is over 100deg even at 11am. I think its due to a new garage door i put in...I got the best fully insulated door but that was in the winter im not sure if it was the best choice now that summer is approaching! although It will be the best choice if I put an A/c or something similiar in there! Either way im pretty bummed

That sucks but it'll look good as new when you get her back. When you do forget about it and enjoy the ride.

I'll never forget buying a new car about 10 years ago and after about a week and very carefully getting things off to the side in my garage I back it in nice and easy and manage to sideswipe my friggin' lawn mower. Nice 3 inch gash in the pasenger rear quarter panel. I was sick for 3 days!

There's mud on the side of my car again...I don't know where it came from. Ideally, I'll wash my car Friday night...I've done it before.
