    The following images were taken after the Roadster had been sitting in the rain for about an hour. A couple of the photos show cool spots where rain has run down and cooled the surface.

    In the first shot, you can see the intense heat of the disk brakes of passing traffic.

    Interesting that the coolant seems to be the hottest place :)

    In the last pic, the cables "glowing" at ~16C° - these look really "cool" (not meant in a thermal way!).

    A reminder not to carry your frozen foods home in the Roadster trunk.....?

    Interesting. What material is the sensor array?

    Neat that you can see the reflection of the wheel spokes on the brake discs.

    No, it's well below room temperature in the trunk. The thermal imager just makes it look hot by the color choices.
