I have a question:  If direct exposure to the sun can make dark materials in space even at earth's orbit over 200 degrees, why doesn't the any of the black plastic dashboard, or seats, or tires, or even the regular automotive red paint show any sines of deterioration, or evidence of being baked?

Apparently, carbon fibre can stand that kind of heat.

"High Temperature Panels. Protech's high temperature carbon fiber panels are produced using a specially formulated high temperature, high strength epoxy resin. The result is a lightweight carbon panel that can withstand heat as high as 400 degrees Fahrenheit with minimal thermal expansion."

That's 205 degrees science.
