Is there a nonannealed PLA filament that can withstand sun temps of 105F to 110f without deforming or softening?

the main problem is not the temparature but the not existent UV resistance.
Use ASA or GREEN-TEC

None that I know of. Petg works very well in the sun and is nearly as easy to print. I've printed a shift knob for my car ages ago in petg and it's good as new.

Curious, why it has to be PLA?

Because it will be hard...
