The chances of finding any used ones with the black coating intact are practically nil. You can strip the rotting coating with a razor blade, but be careful at the edges since the seals also overlap the edge slightly.

The coating deteriorates fairly rapidly in sunlight - another reason to use a car cover.;)

What I do with these:
  • Remove originals
  • Slice along the top edge and the bottom edge carefully, with a razor, to separate the decaying portion facing out from the part that's attached to the squeegee parts
  • Angle grinder with a wire wheel (and plenty of ventillation) to scrape off the decaying part
  • Polish the bare metal and put back on OR spray w/ black bumper//trim paint from the auto store
Brake cleaner (get the red can) can help with this, but you don't want that to get on your skin, it's nasty stuff
