Apparently the Inland marine stuff ribshop sell is decent, I think the polymarine stuff isn't great from what I've read.

PS. Don't paint the SR!

I agree with Chewy.

Don't do it.

It will look good for a while, then it'll look worse than before.

In agreement here too, dont do it!
scrub the tubes clean with "Traffic Film Remover" concentrate from machine mart and a green pan scourer/scotch pad, then either use some 3M or 303 protectorant, or give them a coat of emulsion floor polish such as eternum or similar.

Sorry lads, forgot about this.
The tubes have already been painted before I bought the RIB. So it's a case of keeping on top of them now.
