Just checked the result of the 'Heat Soak' mods, #s 1,2, and 3 on my '05, and I can happily say there's an obvious improvement in temperature , i.e., no apparent change after engine warm-up like before; and today was hot in Atlanta!

Thanks, again, Michael.

Next, I'll drill out the footwell vents covers, and probably tape the nose vents. The latter I'm still a little reluctant to do, because I like flow-through ventilation, but I guess the Elise doesn't really have that capability passively; gotta just pop off the top, and roll down the windows!!
