CLP: bake it or not?

I have a new Wilson Combat recoil kit for a Pro size pistol soaking in some CLP. With other parts for other guns I've let them soak overnight and wiped them down the next day and found it seems to help with clean up down the road. I've seen a few mentions here and on youtube where some take things a bit further and also heat up the wet parts in theory getting a more durable coating?
So I've been thinking about tossing these parts, flat wire spring, guide rod and plug in the oven? I'm thinking 200 or so for 20ish minutes, let them cool and wipe them down? I doubt it will hurt the guide rod or plug but I'm wondering if heating the spring could be not so good?
Any thoughts?

Not sure what it can help, but it's done with Frog Lube, so why not. When I do a Frog Lube session on top the wood stove it gets plenty hot. How hot? I boil water atop the stove to put humidity in the air.

happy Easter MontanaResident :-)

... I had seen your posts. I pretty sure Frog Lube is a CLP? Do you heat your recoil springs with the other parts?

... the parts will be going in a little bit later. This will need to be a "dark op". If my girlfriend catches me putting the the coated parts in the oven she may want a new oven!!! Maybe not, but I'm not taking any chances :-)

Cleaning with Hoppes in the kitchen sink was banned here a couple of years ago....

...been there done that, Hoppes don't get opened in the house anymore :-)
...I've been using the Breakthrough solvent. It works better than anything else I've tried and no smell. I haven't ever seen it in a store though? Brownells carries it as does VZ.
