steamer turned rubber glass seals white after removing tint.


Recommended Posts

not sure what the door glass seals are made of, but after steam removing tint, the seals turned white.

 

possible to restore the black color?

 

Car is old. Maybe I should have masked the seals with foil or used silicone lubricant on them before steaming so close?
