I have 61 PV544. The rubber gaiter that holds the chrome ring and turn signal lens is so hard I can't replace the lense and indicator. Does anyone know if there is a way to soften it up a little. Anybody had any luck with Armorall or a similar product, does that stuff ( Armorall) really work anyway?

Thanks for the info. I tried Lexol on my 64 Lincoln and wasn't too pleased with the results, maybe the leather was too far gone. I just found this website and the product "sounds" great, give it a look:http://www.autogeek.net/lereoil.html<p>Anyway my main question is how to soften old hardened rubber.

I don't think it's possible, the rubber has just dried out and cracked, history

I agree...only real solution is to replace the rubber.
