Weatherstrip treatment

About a week ago I finally got the GM advised weatherstrip treatment. GM# 12371287, Super Lube with PTFE and applied to all weatherstrips. There are a few feet of it. Seemed to increase softness and resiliance, definitely removed the UV damaged "grey." Don't get it on your paint, it's a PIA to get off, and the "grey" from UV damage transfers along with it - looks poor on yellow. They also seem to think it's bad for you, skin, eyes, etc. I didn't have a good alternative to fingertip so I suppose I'm polluted now.

I can't speak to the long term benefits, short term it's helped. But considering the number of feet of stripping and the absolute importance of it's being intact I'm willing to take GM's advice. I've actually given some thought to buying the complete stripping kit and storing it, I'll wait and see what happens with SSR production.

window smear

Have you had smear on the windows, or did I use to much? Added it to window rubbers and then wiped it down, but seamed to have some transfer to window and then smear.

i too have used grease on my weatherstripping per maintenance recommendations in service manual. if you wipe off excess or rub into seals until excess is absorbed, the smears shouldn't be a problem. :thumbs
