i got this yesterday Vinyl Polish And Restorer - only used it on a small patch so far but does seem to work. I am going to clean the tubes first with SOLVENT CLEANER PLASTIC PVC PVCu 4 windows-doors conservatories,1 Ltr Everbuild | eBay.

Let us know how it works for you Parm. My own tubes are looking a bit tired at the moment too.

Meguiars carnauba wax. Some RNLI use it. Stops oil/sun etc too. Looks great Though it's slippy once polished.
