care for rubber on turbo tail

what are you guys using on the rubber to keep it supple? i have back to black, but does that keep it from drying out?

Not sure about the tail rubber, but I've had great results with dielectric grease on the rubber around flag mirrors.

I've brought the rubber on my car back to life with boiled linseed oil.

Like an idiot I painted mine with trim paint when I purchased the car . What would be a good way to strip it?

I have heard some of the knowledgable guys on the paint and bodywork side if the forum use petroleum jelly.
let it sit in the sun to heat up, bring it back in and wipe it off. I will be trying this

vasaline is best for that... scuba divers use it on black rubber dive masks and fins to preserve the rubber and keep it from dry rotting.
lexol vinylex is good too but rain won't rinse off vasaline.

commercial stuff like armour all and back to black have solvents in them and they make it look better at first but are actually bad for rubber and shorten the life of it.
i read that somewhere on the internet so i donno.. maybe it's true.

Slight thread hijack but, but what are you using to get car wax off of the tail rubber? I didn't mask it offf the first time I waxed it and now it's got white streaks on it.

I don't know if you guy's have that brand in the US but Autglym is often used in the professional race world. I've been using there products for many years. so I used Bumper care on my rubber.
Ones a year and it looks like new.

Peanut oil or peanutbutter is what I was told, never tried it.

i read that somewhere on the internet so i donno.. maybe it's true.
that was what i was worried about, stuff like that actually being bad for it.

you know i have thought about vasline. what about skin so soft, or neets feet oil.
i think it was skin so soft that i used to lube the rubber seal that goes around the windshield rfame for the top on my 914 so that it would slide on. slide the new rubber back in the channel that is.
i have been soaking my dash in neets feet oil. i need to do the rear one too.

i may pull the rubber tail off along with the front rubber part in front of the hood. i have seen both of these start to rust inside and get lumpy on other cars. maybe i can catch it before it starts/gets bad. you think a little OSPHO around the screw studs would hurt to stop any rust?

+1 on Aerospace 303 Protectant. You can use it on all the rubber.
You might have to remove the layer of oxidized rubber from the tail with a rag and lacquer thinner before you apply the 303. Otherwise it will streak.

Dawn dish soap will take the wax off but be careful cause it will take the wax off anything it comes in contact with.
I use Adam's car care products and the SVRT brings back the black on rubber, if you use it first then when you wax any wax that gets on rubber or glass will wipe right off.
If you use good quality car care products from the same company, they are usually all compatible and won't interfere with each other. The SVRT has a #30 sunscreen UV benefit that you won't find with Veenor slider. (German for Vaseline)
