as far as rejuvenation, limited. 303 aerospace protectant applies similar to armour all and the hoods will shine up (and may be slippery btw). armour all is not good long term though. to protect it from further deterioration, especially UV, this solution extensively used in the boating industry (my experience is kayaks), http://tinyurl.com/ls7nu you can get it in most marine stores. btw, for those of you that use helmets, they also break down with UV and

would benefit with an application.
