Ok - I did a search and nothing came up so here's my question:
What do you think the best way to preserve rubber might be for small rubber parts and larger items? We all know that when exposed to light and air rubber will dry out and crack (tires, dashboards, gaskets, seals, etc). I did a search on Google as well as on the site and found nothing helpful. A lot of people believe "Armor All" will help! YIKES! That's definitely not a good idea!
I've seen really old "stuff" wrapped in oiled paper that retained most of its flexibility - but would that be the best way to save and preserve our NOS parts or spares? I was thinking for small items they might do well stuffed into a coffee can filled with petroleum jelly (or??) - larger items like hatch seals and what not would be difficult to do that with.
