Fading Tubes

Hi
I have a Blue Humber and the tubes have started to fade a little. I was just wondering if anybody had any idea of products that can help with this. I have tried Rib shops stuff and its not great and the 3M works well but only lasts a month or so.
Thanks

Sorry to hear you have not had success with Rib revive. My mate has the same tubes as you badly faded he did the job with RR plus the UV protector and they came up fantastic. He did this because I told him of my success with the product over the years on my yellow tubes.
Hope you find a solution.

303 Aerospace does a great job with UV protection, but it has to be reapplied fairly often as well.

You will need to make sure the tubes have been cleaned really well before applying any conditioner otherwise it will just be sitting on top of whatever has been applied before and not working into the fabric.

Hi Thanks for the tips. I did use RIB revive before using the 3M and before using the conditioner but still no joy. Would you recomend using it neat? The tubes are very clean with no marks.
Thanks
