    Keeping car well sealed/quiet in harsh environment

    Do you guys think it's worth it to frequently treat my weatherstripping/door seals and black plastic/moulding parts with Mother's Back to Black or an equivalent silicone spray or lube? Soon it will be 115+ degrees here and I know how bad the heat and dryness trash these materials. I'm concerned about keeping the wind noise down and the seals in good shape...just wondering if it's worth it? And if silicone is bad for them?

    Any other tips for keeping the car quiet on the highway (short of Dynamat).

    Wow that's hot. I got some Dynamat (36 sq ft) to sound deaden my car once I get it. Other than that, I can't really think of anything to make the car more quiet on the highway.

    You can put a thicker coat of underspray/tar-type stuff on the bottom of your car, it would be a hassle though.

    and put more insulation in the car.
