Hi Pingskills! 

Just wondering, is it possible to pull off a rubber and put a new one on but keep the old rubber for later use if you want to reglue it?  If you can, how do you keep it in good conditions to use later?

Hi Jason,

Yes you can remove a rubber depending on how it has been put on.  Some of the rubbers that were put on in the factory have very strong glue that will make it difficult to remove.  Just be careful when you are removing it.  Start around the edges and work your way around slowly lifting a bit of rubber at a time.  You may also be able to use a solvent under the rubber to help you to get it off.

After you remove it you can cover it in plastic or cling wrap and keep it in a cupboard.  Just make sure you don't have it in the heat or dust.
