    hi all,

    Does anyone know how to repair some cracks in a rubber boot spoiler?

    I have 4 cracks that go across the spoiler (so front to back) and they are very noticeable.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    You can try wipe some drip check in them, drip check is sandable and you can paint straight over it.
    Or wipe some windscreen sealant in them if you don't want to paint over rubber, assuming the rubber is black
    also soaking rubber in prepsol will soften the rubber without eating in to it.

    Thanx for the replies guys :)

    I stripped back down to the bare rubber and used a flex aid then primed over that... then tomorrow will apply the colour and clear....

    Once its all done i will post some pics of the finished product.. (Fingers crossed all goes well).
