How to keep your Kool !

I recently posted a thread about a sound deadener / insualation I put in above the roof liner.
I wanted to know just how well it was going to work , so today i tried an experiment.
I built a sheet metal box witha couple of air vents and insulated the inside top only , I then put it out in direct sun and recorded the temps inside and on the outside surface for 2 hrs . I monitered the temps every 20 min's or so and what a surprize I got. The out side temp on the surface of the box was 122 degree's and the inside temp maintained a steady temp of 82 degree's . Now this tells me just how good this insulation is , a 40 degree temp differance , Just think what it can do for our cars.
If anyone wants more info give me a shout ,

Anything is bteer than what these cars came with.
