How clean does the metal work need to be? Thinking to cut the bulk of the rubber off and take a file to the remnants :-\

Now the worst part of the job is removing all the old rubber.

 Fire? Solves everything!

(And not for the first time I'm impressed with the skill in making a relatively simple mould - if I were to try I'd probably end up in Casualty...)


ever tried to burn out a rubber bush?


No, I thought not.

Not a diff bush, but the remains of a shock mount on one of those Ford based "vintage sports car" kits... My boss told me to... He regretted it when we could no longer see the other side of the yard... :D

Niw what the bloody hell were they called? Panther, maybe?

You need the polyurethane to bond to the metal. So getting it to be completely clean, and shiny should be considered the minimum. I found a razor sharp scraper, followed by 80grit sanding discs to be effective, if boring.
