I painted my new OEM Toyota lines in 2 coats of POR15 before I put them on because I never wanted them to rust again. It went on but didn't hold too well to such a small round shape, but a large portion of it is still on there and better then nothing. I'd think you'd be ok plastidipping, the lines stay away from the exhaust mostly, and I don't think they get that hot. Worse case scenario all I can see happening in the plasti dip being burned off. I'd definitely try and do some sort of coating to help protect all your work from corrosion, I was also thinking of using shrink tubing haha.

You could plastidip a scrap piece and hit it with a heat gun to see how it handles it?

Hey Bryan I just saw this but I have a question. In the AGS link it says you can get the fittings black oxide coated but all the ones on their site show just standard finish. Did you recieve any that were coated for corrosion resistance? Did you purchase the metric kit or count up how many you needed?

And as for the rubber covers for the rear lines I was thinking of using thick heat shrink tubing or vaccum tubing although that would make bending much more difficult. Did you end up plasti dipping them?
