Plastidip Strut Tower Brace

Got a Boss Strut Tower Brace in transit to me and thinking about plasti dipping it. Has anyone done a tower brace before? Did it hold up well with the engine temp, especially during the summer? Etc.

I would go to Plastidip's website and see what the specifications for the product are concerning temperature.

It stiffens a little
If you haven't already, do control arms.
Better investment IMO

How does the vinyl wrap hold up with the engine heat? It looks badass!
