Thumbs down Funky looking window seals

OK, a problem on the girlfriends car.

The rubber strip around her front windows (on the outside of the door - the outer edge) has a white blotchy look to it. She armorall's it till its back to black, but within a day or two, the blotchyness is back with a vengence. It was my car for a couple of years, and I never had this problem, it was out in the weather 95% of the time too.

Basically the question is, can you recommend anything good to keep the seals black for a long period of time? armorall does jack.

Has she put car wax on the seals?
got the same problem with my car... (accidently hit the seals with the wax product)

only thing you can really do is paint it with that black glaze tyre rubber stuff.

Good Luck =)

i think meguirs have a product for removing wax from mouldings and seals might be worth a try.

or trycleaning them with metho or a water spot cleaner and then instead of armor all use silicon spray.
