looks fine, specially if you never wipe them down.

There aren't any signs of puddling or any large amounts of fluid coming out.

I would have probably asked the same question If I hadn't seen mine with a full on leak.

Just the film of oil that gets buy the wiper- not really a leak.

I wipe them down so it doesn't attract dust and stuff to get back into the seal.

You notice it more due to the black coating on the sliders.

yeah, west palm beach only has a few turns, the air port road (great for getting arrested) or the 90 degree turns to make a left or right which are usually covered in sand form all the dump trucks.
