Can't find anything exactly matching my query on the boards.
My 50 year old Rover's boot seal needs removing and replacing. The rubber has deteriorated and distorted (obviously old/or botched refit) and is like a dry sponge and dried liquorice in places! (sorry about the analogies!).
Any advice on cleaning the remaining hard gunk of the boot lip please?
I would recommend Innotec Seal and Bond Remover 04.0107 Technical Cleaner. Available online with free delivery. It is a German product which I have found to be very effective. I recently stripped ALL seals from my car and this worked a dream. Spray on, leave for about 10 minutes so to soften up the sealant. I use heavy duty plastic scrapers, Google - Adhesive weights scraper set plastic scraper seal remover. I have no connection with the brands mentioned!
I use an old pen knife for that sort of job. If the paint underneath is old and hard it probably will not go down to bare metal and the new rubber will cover it up ! I have a Scotts rubber around my boot and am very pleased with it.
