Door and top hingge lubricants

Dicktator was saying at Winnie to periodically lubricate door latches and door parts. I think he said with silicone lubricant.
What kind of lubricant is recommended if I have that right. And can the same lubricant be used on the top moving parts.

He was working on rebuilding the latch on one of the UV cars and was talking preventive maintenance.

Spray Silicone Lubricant is best for all applications because it does not attract and hold dirt like oils do. The silicone is recommended for the door latches and door mechanism because it also helps waterproof the components.
WD40 is actually not a good lubricant, it was designed to be a water displacement (WD) and penetrant.
There are a few multi purpose lubricants made by PB Blaster and 3M that are good lubricants too. I do not use any of the lubricants on the hinges and latches in the top compartment because they smell up the interior. Silicone spray don't smell and don't attract dirt.

TB: Thanks for the info. I will get some better stuff for the doors and avoid the roof lubricant.

FWIW: @Dicktator was using my LPS2 on the moving parts in the mechanism... good stuff. I use LPS1 on areas that require a lighter lubricant, like the pneumatic shafts.

I consider LPS kinda old school. It does have a slight smell, but it takes me back... Rediscovered after @Mike in AZ mentioned it.

P.S. Sorry I was making so much noise “next door” @Dicktator .

The funny part was you were using the power wrench and we couldn’t hear and when you stopped, the air pump cut on and we couldn’t hear. It was a visual experience...

This is what I use for Door Latch/Lock Module, door handle, etc.:

DW40 Silicone Spray because it waterproofs, dries, no oil to hold dirt.

I also use Sil-Glyde from NAPA for all rubber seals, use stocking on hand, rub lightly over seals to clean and restore softness. Be sure to get "dirt" out of seals, dirt rubs like sandpaper and seals are hard to fine if you can find any.

Any quality product is fine, use your best judgement but Lubrication and Rubber Seal Care should be taken for your Collector Car.

Dicktator

1. DW40 Silicone
2. Spray helps eliminate all the water that corrodes Door Latch/Lock Module
3. I use Sil-Glyde by NAPA to protect/rejuvenate Rubber Seals.
4. Spray door handles and module every once in a while.
5. Use Tongue depressor, reach in and spread Sil-Glyde on TOP of Door Latch/Lock Module to protect module from rain, car wash etc.

Either your nose is stopped up or you've never tried out Liquid Wrench Silicone Spray.
