Tube paint

Hi, I have just bought a nice 1997 Avon 5.6D, the tubes are in very good condition apart from one very small place where the pontoon must have been rubbing on it, there is a small white patch where the orange has been rubbed off, is there any kind of hypalon paint I can cover this over with?

cheers Martin

Might be better off using a patch the same colour?
Any photos?

If you take it to ribshop they'd sort it for you.

Painting it will tidy it up but you'll have to mask the area and maybe do the same on the other side so it still looks tidy?

As has been said RIBshop will sort that in no-time; they should just be able to replace the seam tape. Painting it won't do any harm and will be a lot cheaper.

I'd definitely put a new strip over that, It will look a lot better and stay that wait for a lot longer.
