Default Rear locking hubs?

I am repainting my windshield frame this weekend. My rubber gasket between the cowl and frame is in good shape. The problem is that it is the white color the truck was painted. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to remove the paint without distroying the rubber? I was thinking of gasoline.

I just used paint stripper, didn't notice any adverse effect on the gasket.

Thanks. I plan on replacing it when I tear down and paint the entire truck. I just need it to last another year or so. The rebuild will happen one I get all of my mechanical modifications done, road tested, modified better, re-road tested, fixed again, beat with a BFH and accept that that is as good as it will get.

gas is not good for rubber. There are paint strippers available that will not hurt it.

Default Pilot Bearing removal....

In the past I have cleaned paint off of rubber pieces such as weatherstripping, etc. with a sandblaster. You would think it would destroy the rubber, but it doesn't. Apparently because the rubber is resilient the sand doesn't tear it up. Try it carefully, I think it will work for you.

I have taken paint off rubber with tire cleaner. It takes a little elbow grease, but works well.

Lacquer thinner works wonders, wear gloves, wet a rag and slowly wipe the paint, it will soften and come off, the lacquer thinner will remove a little rubber making it look brand new, it seems to soften the harder rubber to giving it a new look. It worked great on my windshield rubber. Good Luck Fisherman
