Tighten Nuts on Bands While Hot?

I'm doing a high temp burn to clean my LBGE, and at 750 for over 40 min. I checked the bands for tightness before firing up, now I notice I can tighten them up some which I'm sure is due to thermal expansion of the bands. If I tIghten at this temp will I risk excessive torque on the nuts/bolts after they cool down? There was a good bend on the bolts already at ambient temps.
