What top layer of rubber, OOOH you mean the black horrid deteriorated rubber that has been eaten by sunlight and years of mis-use?

I did the rest from that patch up to the nose, and have already started on my second pad!

Polisher, i think you should warn people that any scratches/Marks WILL become more visible

i had no idea that i had so many surface coating scratches! i think i need some new rubber coating stuff (front end) due to some misusage with anchor/sharp objects it seems.

p.s. i give up for today, to much hard work for me

Hmm, seems that i cant edit my post anymore.... The option must vanish after a while!

Anyway, just ordered some stuff.... and here is a picture of the pads i use for my one... i was using car scrub pads (for roughing the surface of aluminium paint up) It seems that i can do about 1m with a pad.. until it turns all soft and they come to bits...

These spontex pads are virtually the same, and i think they cost 1,- for a packet of 2... dirt cheap!

Yes I have tried most things!
It worked well they came up nice & shiny but soon dulled down!
But then every thing dose!
Was not shore about the long term affect to the tubes!

I really really hate to be..........

......a bore but I use, as I've told everyone a million times "Revival" which is a Zodiac product. It's bloody good and once a few layers have built up the tubes take on a nice clean glow and when soiled following a cruise/time under the tarp etc they clean off easily. My pal has the exact same boat as me but was to tight to spend 13.50 on a little tub of this stuff and instead used elbow grease and an assortment of car/rubber/ off the shelf cleaners, however, whenever we cruised together he'd always remark (as would his passangers) how clean mine was compared to his.
