thats what I was gonna say... rubber and paint stripper? lol...

Although soft rubber will be difficult and odd to sand back, it would be best... maybe cool it down in the fridge or something and try it? to harden it?


Cheers

take it to a panel shop and just ask their advice.or pick a quality one and get a price for them to do it . at least that way you know the paint will last the first wash. i think spray putty is asking for trouble.

If you want, send it up to me (I'll organise the freight) and I'll see if I can take a fibreglass mould off it. If successful, I'll give you a product gratis. Is it straight?
Cheers, Bob
