At issue is the time a print was left on a vehicle. Theory is that defendant left print at 9pm when vehicle covered in dust and dew. Defendant says it was left it earlier in day when car was dry but still dusty.

Print lifted next day. Is there any way to determine by examining lift whether there was dew on vehicle at time print was left?
