Try Jif or whatever they call it nowadays on some scorchcloth.

Bit of hard work should get them back like new.

Test it on a little bit first and see how it goes.

It worked a treat on my sons old boat, but it took him ages. Kept him out of trouble tho.....

It does work but it is bloody hard work and needs a few goes. Probably best left for a winter project.

Have you tried claning with Ribshine or TFR [/QUOTE]
Traffic Film Remover, you'd need to be careful with that stuff. I use it. Only apply it 50-50 with water and rinse before it dries. Otherwise you'll end up with streaks that you wont get rid of. It's wicked at getting the tubes clean. They must be treated with some sort of tube protector after though.
