986 pics you likely have not seen before...

As you can see from these random images, the front radiators make the fenders glow and the trunk area just bleeds heat.

Too bad you can't get a decent res image without the overlay. These are pretty cool (read: warm) images.

This is from a 8 year old FLIR. It was almost $2k back then. Now they are way better and cheap.

Wow, never realized how hot those fenders get and also the rear spoiler. I guess it really does get a lot of wind friction back there.

Pretty sure that rear heat is all from exhaust system and trans.

Spoiler is definitely one of the hottest spots after a long drive.
