Been thinking about this one for a few minutes, not that I have any
experience with PC'ing. Fred, which type of degrees are you talking
about? Those big C ones or the little F ones? 100deg F isn't all
that hot! Imagine coming back to your car in a hot parking lot
during the summer and finding the finish of your brake drums puddling
around your tires. :-( On the other hand, if the drums ever get up
to 400deg F, not to mention 400deg C, you'd have cause to worry about
plenty more than just the finish running. Or so it seems to me. But
then, what do I know?
Just my $.007.
