Orange weatherstrips on a black car look ugly, what to do? I would use tire shine if it was paint friendly. How about plastix?

There is a silicone based grease available that revives weather strips, and will make them look new again... from 3M I think. Even O-ring grease does a great job, same idea.

I wash with the car, and wax, mine look factory fresh.

however if you need to restore the black then I highly recommend "back to black" by mothers

I used some back to black in the pictures i just posted. It worked great on the harder compound stuff around the front and back windows, was spotty on the softer compound around the doors. It looked like it would not absorb in some areas .

The very first time you apply it you need to really work it in with a good amount, afterwards simple maintance is all thats needed

I tried it. Was good when first applied. After the first wash there appeared spots. Either I couldnt do it properly or it doesnt work.

Back to Black and similar (I prefer the Meguiars equivalent personally) need to be applied semi-regularly. I don't know if it just needs a few coats at first, or if it is an ongoing chore.

Correct, its not a 1 time thing, generally once a month. You MIGHT be able to take a heat gun, but I wouldn't recommend it

Also it should fade less and require less maintenance if the vehicle is kept away from too much direct sunlight.

A thin layer of non hardening silicone compound lasts like 5 years, and keeps the rubber just as black as a US president.
The engineers hoped to modify the boot lid in order to minimize wind resistance.The easiest method involved attaching
a rear spoiler, though that would detract from the vehicle's lines.
Alternatively, the lip of the lid could be enlarged, though that would require significant more work. Naturally, the team chose the second approach, and set to work in a wind tunnel lab in Miyoshi. A while later, they emerged with the hoped-for design, which was both aerodynamic and aesthetically pleasing...

When I use back to black, I put some on the rag and spread an even thick layer without rubbing it in at all and it last about 2-3 weeks or washes.

I stand by my commentary that the Meguiars equivalent is even better than Back to Black (I even took comparative pics to prove it), but both do the job and are recommended.
