Is there a specific formula in clear silicone you would recommend?

On a Viscount project, I saved the same style half hoods that looked far worse. Viscount / Lambert had their own but now curious if the MAFAC type interchange. Looked like fungus growth plus splitting. Cleaned them in bleach and then made a slurry of shoe glue clear and some sort of thinner. I don't exactly recall and was just experimenting. Probably let them sit for 6 months before installing. They turned out pretty good and so far are lasting.

Viscount bars and preserved brake 1/2 type hoods
