Were rubber made face masks were used by "zodiac"?

I have came across a weird case in the Israeli media, a 26 years old Russian-born American guy used a rubber made old man's face mask and 2 rubber made fake old arms and hands gloves with long sleeves, he bought those especially for carrying out robberies while pretending to be "an old man who only communicate in English or Russian" (http://www.maariv.co.il/news/law/Article-594570 and http://www.ch10.co.il/news/384700/#.WYh9woTyvIU ). I have learnt that such masks were available in the 1960s from someone who was in his late 20s (possibly the same age as "zodiac") back then.

Do you think that this was what "zodiac" had referred to as his "disguise" after the Paul Stine murder?

Doubt it very much. If he had one of those and did indeed carry out the Lake Berryessa attack then he wouldn't have needed a hood as well to disguise himself.

I know fake stuff like that wouldn't leave prints because oils on the skin are needed, but that cab wasn't a traditional print since it was an imprint left in blood. If Zodiac really did leave fake clues, a fake print (in blood) isn't totally out of the realm of possibility, I suppose. I think the fake face is a little much. :)

The Zodiac without doubt was two faced.

Put some glasses on him and we might just have all the looks covered. ....might need some blonde highlights.
