I would like to bring some life back to my weather stripping around the trunk and maybe other places - get it to 'stand up' a bit and/or soften it up some to help sealing and appearance. A buddy suggested using baby-oil, but I am not sure about that (I don't have a supply of babies :rolleyes
.

Any suggestions folks? Thanks again...

Ron,
you could try baby oil. I don't know of anything that actually rejuvenates, but I use baby oil on my dash pad and it looks great.

You can bring it back by massaging it with dielectric (silicone) grease while heating it with a heat gun. I guess you could use a good hair drier. While it's still good and warm, close the door with the window up. It will conform to the shape needed as it cools.

There are other uses for baby oil and vaseline? Yeehaw! Out of the medicine cabinet and into the garage.

Hmmm...massage it with dielectric grease, warm it up and slam it in the door. OUCH!



Sorry guys, couldn't resist.

Restore it or customize it, but drive it and enjoy it!

Not sure if it rejuvenates, but for maintenance, use Silicone Lubricant spray...In fact, GM recommends that also, but of course the "GM Brand"


Your local hardware store, or even Pep Boys, etc. will have it...seems to work pretty good to keep it pliable...
