    Is the rubber a real natural rubber, or perhaps a vinyl? Sounds like the auto paint's solvent reacted with what may be a vinyl based rubber, resulting in a paint job that will never dry.

    What color is the vinyl, and what color are you trying to make it. Have you considered dying or staining it instead?
