Lighten your AC Load by Painting your Roof White

My 1989 Civic hatchback doesn't have air conditioning and, even though the car is light blue, the interior can still get quite hot. So I borrowed a design idea from those Mini Coopers you see with white roofs. I used Plasti Dip to paint my roof white. Because it's a rubberize paint, I can always peel it off to return the car to original. The white roof makes a VERY noticeable difference with the cabin temperature. - Doug in Oakland, CA
