Treatment or protectant advice

Hi all,

Some questions if I may, please:

1. What stuff should I use or what do you usually use to protect or prolong the lifespan of the weather sealant (the black rubber that seals between the window and outside air/water, etc)?

2. What stuff should I use or what do you usually use to protect the windshield wiper (the black painted metal) from rust, acid rain etc?

I tried to do a search about this topic but I couldn't seem to find it.

Any advice is much appreciated.

I use

303 protectant on my rubber stuff, even cv boots.

Side note, I also use gel on my wiper blades, same gel as I use on my tires.

this is what I use on exterior black plastic like the windshield plastic, window trim and rear bumperretes. It seems to lasts the longest

you can repaint the wipers yourself using the dupli-color trim spray

I wax the metal wipers....same wax I use on the car Collinite #845 and/or Collinite #915.

I just use Turtle Wax 2k stuff on the plastic. I would use the 303 stuff, but it isnt in stores here.

The Honda dealer I worked at used silicone spray on all the rubber trim, but they wouldn't use it on CV boots (bcause replacing CV boots was big $$ for the mechs). I use silicone on the CV boots and weatherstripping.

I don't pay special attention to the wiper arms, but I have repainted several sets on others cars with much success.
