    Hi all,

    I had my car resprayed recently... got ripped off which i can cope with... but the useless muppet didnt seal the car properly so i have overspray on the black window rubber.

    Now i went to BMW and a whole new set of rubber window seals is over £100!

    Any ideas how to get it off? The painter suggested a stanley blade, but i dont want to ruin it!

    Cheers,

    Tom

    Had a bit of over spray on a Calibra once, used a course cloth and t-cut, with a bit of elbow grease did the job

    Stanley blade is a good tip, drag it over the top of the overspray, don't try to slice it

    If you hold it at just about a right angle to the rubber, apply slight pressure, and drag it back, it will bring it off.

    Concentrate on a small area at a time and you should be ok


    Women are like fairground rides..... fu*king mental!

    Clear waxoyl get paint off and makes the rubber like new. Works a treat on all plastics too, really is the best stuff.

    Nitromors! Joke, don't use that, some thinners should do the trick though.
