replace them, they will perish with time anyway - if you replace them now you are negating the need to replace them 6 months down the track.

and that spoiler is shocking!! when in doubt - use red gaff tape, it'll be better than that monstrosity

The O-rings aren't even expensive so I'd replace them.

Replaced the small and large O-rings and the pintle caps on an RB30e a while back for a grand total of about $34 or so.

o rings are usually cheap, so it's not worth reusing, just replace so you don't get hassles further down the track. just undo the wing and bog the holes - it'll look better!
