    Hi Guys: On my 72 Lark, the rear rubber bumpers are in good shape, except for a few cuts. I need to fill these gashes in and make it look like new.What product is made to bond to the rubber. I am sure I will need to make a V cut in the rubber to have a place for the new material to bond to. Ken

    No idea how it would turn out, but, The Eastwood Co. sells a black rubber substance that might be able to be used for that.

    Take a look at the 3M flexible repair material. It is grey and will require you to paint the strip afterward. I have used it to repair the endura nose on my 73 Trans Am and have also used it to build up and smooth some deteriorated window mouldings on the company Aerostar van. Very easy to work with and not very expensive. Most body supply stores will have it or can get it.

    Have you looked at black R.T.V. as an option? There are many types avail. on the market and maybe one will work for you. I think you will have to experiment.

    I will look into the RTV line of products. Maybe one of the products will work. I need to be very careful as I don't want to screw up my rubber. They are very costly t replace. Ken :Brow: :Brow: :Brow:
