Sandable filler for rubber?
Posted by vince311 on Tuesday, January 14, 2020 8:25 PM

Is there a sandable filler that folks are working with that can be applied to rubber?

I have some seats that I'm trying to change a bit and they appear to be a pliable rubber material.

Maybe plasti-dip? Stuff they use for tool handles?

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

You might try a urethane bumper repair kit for a 1:1 car. They use a two-part epoxy so the cure time is pretty quick. Body shops use a large dual-cartridge gun with a mixing tip for this but I think I've seen small do-it-yourself kits in the auto parts stores next to the auto body fillers and glazes.

Vince, rubber, vinyl, polythene......all very difficult to rework of fill. Don't give yourself grief!.

I suggest that you think laterally. It may be much easier to either scratch build seats from styrene or maybe if you have some styrene seats that can be modified from your spares box or cannibalize from an old model that has seen better days . No problems there with the filling aspect and will be a lot easier to work on.
