Me and two buddies did it in his 80 degree garage and it took everything in our power to get it to fit on right, and it still didn't. One of the plastic trim pieces that hooks into the door surrounds still wouldn't fit in all the way and was peeling itself out from the tension of the other panels. Granted, this was indirect heat and not quite the direct sunlight that it calls for. I'm sure if we had the sun out to heat up the panels it would have gone much smoother.
Then I made the mistake of taking out the windows last week when it was in the high 50's to enjoy the weather... It hasn't gone back on since. My roommate and I couldn't get it back on for the life of us.
So yeah, it's preferably installed in the vent of an active volcano.
