Default Home-made engine head protectors

I saw a video on youtube on how to make engine head protectors by using fuel tubing and some zip ties. My question is, won't the fuel tubing melt when you run the car?

if the fuel tubing and zip tie do melt, the nice clean head won't matter anymore . usually you flip and wreck and the initial hit snaps off the zip tie, the sliding afterwards then causes the scratching anyways. plus it looks very "noob-ish".
