Not yet... the engine blew up not long after I sanded the toobs & rebuilding it kind of took priority...

Not to hand. I think there's a post out there somewhere with a pic of my dodgy toobs on, just can't find it.
EDIT: Found one before I sanded it - that any use?


Solvent...kind of. It's a liquid that will dissolve the material you put it on, and when it evaporates it all fuses together. A bit like water and earth. If you have lumps of earth in a bucket, add water it all turns to mud. When the water evaporates you get a solid lump of earth in the bototm of the bucket. Does that make sense?

Looks like dried up stips of seam tape. The cleaning results look great, just be absolutely certain that the cleaning product does not contain any silicone whatsoever. (Armor-all is a big no-no!)

Wow, nice cleaning job. What did you use to cut through all the stuff on the tubes?

Any local hypalon supplier should also have this tape available. Failing that, PM Paul Tilley, he'll be able to supply you with what you need.

Silicone breaks down the hypalon, it also makes it impossible to glue patches & re-glue seams.
