Default Re: COLOR vs TEMPERATURE

Dust is correct on the dark purple paint on my E Racer. When I cut the winglets off my wings, which had been on the AC painted dark purple for 10 years, I could not see any deterioration of the foam or glass. The AC had sat in 92-93o heat for two-three days at a time. I will bring the cutoffs to Osh for anyone who would care to inspect them. I'm not sure there is an accurate way of measuring just how far into the glass the heat will go on an assembled and painted surface. Does the heat partially dissapate as it passes through the paint, primer, bubbles, and glass before it reaches the foam? All I know is it certinally did no damage to the foam in my wings over a long time period.
