Rubber filler/waterproof putty...Is there such thing.

Recommended Posts

Had Genuine reverse camera on car from new,fitted after market one as Genuine one broke and need some putty/filler as new one is longer that i have cut but not as wide

so i have a gap on the Hatch panel.....Need it to seal and waterproof/act on the same base as a Glue to hold it just that bit better but can be pulled off if needed to replace camera.

Do they make such stuff at a decent price if they do,on the same principle as Gaffa tape as its waterproof and can just peel of but i need putty type to push into the Gap.

I used Butyl rubber gutter sealant to seal the bumper vents, not sure if that's the sort of thing you're after?

You could be onto something there,i bet you its a tube aint it on a gun as this is a very small area to get into so need it like a blue tack stuff,to be honest im using white tack now

as it fits in tight'ish the camera does but i need to put a small amount of paint to cover it as i have done with this white tack stuff for the time.

Silicone sealant will do the job you can get it in small tubes.

Is that not a bit more permanent?

Sugru is a silicone based product so may not paint correctly.

You can mix colours together to try and get a shade close to what you want.

I will see what i can do,it aint the best of jobs but as long as it seals it and looks at least ok it will do.
