Response to Perishing of vinyl components
If the material itself is degrading (like DS tracks, for example) then you can't save it. if it is actually "vinyl" that can not be painted with solvent based paints, which will react with the plastic and cause an oily sticky sufrace. That is why if you build vinyl figure models etc those must be painted with acrylic paints.
Sometimes you get similar reactions to poorly cast resin parts (cheap or poorly mixed resins) that leach out oils forever and will bleed through paint. That stuff will also melt plastic.
