protecting/preserving rubber parts

I purchased the drip rails brand new...$$$



Is there any way of protecting those parts from the elements and UV light? Any kind of wax, vazeline, glycerin?

Is that a Mk2 Jetta? If so, I'm getting ready to replace my drip strips as well. What removal/installation techniques are you using? I read that those drip strips can bend easy because they have a metal band inside of the rubber.

I used a flat screwdriver to pop the rails. Be gentle (you will notice when flexing is too much and might damage something) and take your time. Start from the back.
