Tube colour restore

Has anyone ever used t-cut on there tubes. I saw a boat a few years ago that looked as if it was in need of retuning but was cleaned and tcut used on the tubes to bring them back to showroom condition...pics to follow. Any thoughts?

We normally use Rib shine to clean the tube. Then protection which is a coating that gives it a shine after a couple of coats. Best result Ribshine onto a dry tube, and with protection to apply with a small sponge in the shade.

Rib shine onto a dry tube? Now I know what I am doing wrong. It seemed to not get any better after I had rinsed off the first attempt unless I left it for the next day. Now I have a job for tomorrow.

slightly delayed but here are pics of an old boat that was cleaned using t-cut, I took these of a boat years ago and only found out lately that it was cleaned using T-Cut. I tried to call Henshaws but they might not be open today, The tubes on my boat are in very good condition but there are one or two spots that I would like to restore back to match the rest of the boat. Its washed after every use and has a full cover on 90% of the time when on the marina.

I would say all the Tcut is doing is cutting back the top layer of oxidised tube, you can do the same thing and much easier with a green scouring pad that you wash up with & some road traffic film remover.
