plastidip? how's that going to hold up to the engine heat?

That's what I'm curious about as well! I mean I know that it's pretty durable but I'm wondering about the heat and if that will affect it...bubbles, peeling, etc.

Looks good though...great because if down the road you don't want it anymore you can just peel it off!

definitely. if the plastidip works, fantastic, but i'm wondering if A) it'll bubble/peel, or B) if it'll just melt it to the plastic, thus making it look bad/warping the coat and making it unreomovable

I believe it will hold up because I used it on the shroud around my exhaust tips. It gets very hot. After a year there is no bubbling or blistering.
