Here we go again......

Sorry but it will start a long debate. Some people swear by rib revive - others think that TFR or traffic film remover is a much cheaper option. Personally I use the latter.

Do a search for both on this forum.

When the tubes are clean they need to be sealed to stop it happening again. Most people swear by 303 aerospace cleaner. I have used it - works ok but needs to be applied once a month. Many people swear by Johnson Klear or similar floor sealer - it lasts a lot longer - it is what I will try next!!!

Not a clue - i always remember it as Klear - it is called Future in the USA - looks like it may be finishing soon - only Wilkinsons stock it apparently but I bought some in Tesco not long ago - will have to check. loads of other products though - basically it's an acrylic based floor sealer.

Meguiars #16 wax is good although you won't be able to sit on the tubes as it leaves em really slippy, won't do the hull any harm either if it needs a polish?
I use it on my car and usually get a month or so out of each coat before it wears off.
