I used the selleys kwikgrip gel, and thinners to clean the contacting surfaces when doing the boot seal on the Mustang (the only seal ive done on that so far) and all the seals on the Caddy. But thats because I always have a 20l drum of thinners handy im sure soapy water works fine.

This stuff is good if you can find it out here.

Have a spare tube of the OEM Yellow if you are interested in "correct"...

As noted be sure to clean new seals before installing to remove release agent used to keep them from sticking to the molds. Prepsol or similar mild solvent works well...

Plastics and rubbers are often contaminated with a silicone release spray. This enables removal from the mold without damaging the part.

Ah, that would explain that slightly "greasy" feel to them I got when I was checking for rip, tears and frays.

Invaluable information as usual gents!

Ill get some happy snaps today of the progress made on the car and throw em up in the projects section.

Best way is to go by smell. Go to Bunnings and Take four good sniffs from a Quickgrip can, then four good sniffs from a Gelgrip can. when you wake up simply buy the one you remember! :rotfl:
