    Some of the trim on my car is oxidizing pretty bad and I want to know how I can stop/repair it. For example, the side mirrors have some rubber around them which is starting to turn white.

    Oh, also the rubber looks very brittle in some spots and is starting to flake a bit

    Hard plastic and rubber can be made to look better with polish. Clearkote's Vanilla Moose works very well on that type of trim.

    Strangly, on a couple of cars ive used VM on for this purpose, the trim has actually looked WORSE then better.

    maybe i did somthing wrong, buti ended up having to use a heavy vinyl/rubber cleaner on it, and then applying PoorBoys Trim restore, twice, to get it back to black.
