Default RE: Cold temperatures + Coroplas?

Let's see. Right now, my furnace thermostat reads about 70 F. The outdoor thermometer on my kitchen window reads -27.5 F. Folks, that's a 97.5 deg. F temperature swing. Anyone want to go flying? I'm not sure I can even get my MDS 48 on my Debonair to turn over, let alone start, but if it did start, I'll bet the compression ratios would be outstanding!

By the way, for the uninitiated, -27 F falls into the "take your breath away" cold category. It's really quite hard to describe, other than the fact that I start shivering just thinking about starting my car up in the morning. Thank God for garages!

Stay warm!

Not to beat a dead horse here, but you all mean that a coroplast-only hinge is doing fine at low temperatures?
