    Hi Guys,

    I've got a couple machines that will be shipping shortly and I'm concerned about the winter temps. Both have very nice backglasses and I want to avoid contraction and expansion of the glass to the point of cracking the inks.

    Is this something anyone has experienced? Should I wait and ship when the temps are warmer? They will be blanket wrapped, but I doubt that will be enough if the machines are sitting on a truck for several weeks.

    Thoughts?

    Thanks, Tim

    I left a perfect jungle queen in my car and it got pretty cold, brought it in the next day and the back glass literally flaked from being out there overnight
