I'm considering using my car as a hot box this weekend. Mostly curious to know if this is a bad idea, for the skis and/or for the car's interior.
* The skis currently have a storage coat on them. Should I scrape before doing this to prevent wax from getting on the upholstery?
* Is wax likely to get on the upholstery even if I do scrape them?
* My plan of attack: The high on Saturday is forecast to be 88F. I'm thinking that means the temp inside the car will get into the right range. My plan is to put a thermometer in the car, then check it around 3pm. If the interior temp is too high, I'll wait until it gets low enough, then put the skis in. Then I'll check the thermometer again every 30 minutes or so.
I'm kind of wondering if this might result in me only getting 3 hours or so of good temps. I've heard that you should hot box for something like 6 hours. Should I even bother?
I've thought about this a lot, but I'm just curious to know if anybody can think of something I forgot to consider, or if you think this is a really stupid idea in general. Thanks!
