That's an incredible result. I have a tired ribeye dive 5.4 same colour tubes that desperately need cleaning . Will the dye cope with the water, and do you put anything on top to prevent, and is there a closer to the original orange available???

Clean the tubes with Bostik Thinners... Then apply alot of Armor gloss... This can be brought in Halfords as a spray on.
