How to extend the life of the window rubber lining

car is not garaged, only off-street parking. noticed cracks starting to show on window rubber lining. should I just use commercial grade tyre black polish, or can you recommend something from repco or autocheap!

This is a shot in the dark but have you tried unfragranced talc powder! I think that tends to keep proper rubber healthy, but not sure about synthetic rubber, or whatever odd plastic substance they use on cars!

hey mate, this is the outer lining i'm talking about, so putting a talk powder would make it white, plus out in the sun and rain, so no effect! cheers

There is plenty of rubber care products at those places. Most brands have one, like armoral, turtle, mothers etc.

Silicone Spray works quite well if you want a quick application.

Yea it great stuff, you can use it for all sorts. makes the best tyre spray as well. Makes them look natural and crap dosnt stick them for ages.

Nor does paint. Thought you'd be onto that gun. Our painter hates anything slippery.
I was gunna mention Gibbs Auto Brand.
