Removing old cracked paint from a rubber spoiler


Recommended Posts

Others on here with much more experience but on the rubber one someone fitted to my old SR which was covered in cellulose paint, I used cellulose thinners and other than some mild 'greying' it didn't look too bad, I know it sounds bonkers but the fireplace grate blacking stuff refreshed it a treat!

Scrape off what you can then use 180 grit on a da sander carefully then finish off with 320 grit. Few good coats of primer, good as new and ready for top coat of course after flatting primer with dust coat on.

Make sure you don't get the discs hot and keep moving the sander.

Good luck!
