IAM NOT AN EXPERT CHEMIST OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT BUT I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN A REPAIRED PUNCTURE OF A BIKE TYRE STARTED LOSING AIR. THEREFORE THE OLD PATCH HAD TO BE REMOVED AND I REMEMBER DOING THIS BY DROPPING PETROL( GASOLINE) ONTO THE GLUED PATCH AND IN NO TIME IT DETATCHED ITSELF.THIS MEANS THAT THE PETROL DISSOLVED THE RUBBER SOLUTION, THIS NOW TAKES US TO THE ORIGINAL QUESTION AND PROBABLY A POSSIBLE ANSWER TO RESOLVE THE MATTER. LATEX IS THE LIQUID FORM OF RUBBER. THE LIQUID CAN BE TURNED INTO PAINT AND OTHER RUBBER RELATED MATERIALS.....IF PETROL IS APPLIED TO REMOVE AN OLD PATCH OF RUBBER BY DISSOLVING THE RUBBER SOLUTION THEN THE I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE SAME METHOD BE APPLIED TO THE RUBBER PAINT ON THE GLASS AND HOPEFULLY IT WOULD WORK (CAUTION! DO NOT SMOKE OR HAVE NAKED FLAME IN THE WORKING AREA BECAUSE PETROL IS HIGHLY FLAMMABLE). ALTERNATIVELY, APPLY GENTLE HEAT WITH A HARIDRIER AND SCRAPE IT OFF. BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVERHEAT THE GLASS OTHERWISE IT MIGHT CRACK. IHOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK. BLUEMARLIN Goof off is what I use, it works very well.

Yes. I have a furniture company and we use this all of the time. Best recipe we have found is using a tinted latex primer or flat latex paint, scuff with 320 grit paper, paint second coat. After drying, lightly sand with 400 grit paper to remove any roughness, spray with vinyl sealer, scuff again with 400 grit paper and spray conversion varnish. Remove dust at each sanding stage with a vacuum and then a static cloth.
