Not bad at all - needs the odd application of 303 every month of so to keep it spotless though, although to be honest I'm too busy using it to clean it!

Sounds good - so would you still recommend the 303 stuff as a UV protector?

I just had to keep changing gloves regularly (seriously). You don't need much anyway, just wipe it over the tubes. It is the tube protector (e.g. 3M or 303) that brings the deep colour back anyway.

Toluene is just a paint thinner; if used in a well ventilated area- no problem.
You do not even need gloves. Give your hands a good rub with hand cream. before and after use. Have used gallons of the stuff no problem.
Oh, don't drink it.
