Which TFR

Having read numerous threads on cleaning ribs, I have decided to go the TFR route and then cover with a protectant. I have some protector in the shed, but is there any particular Traffic film remover better than the rest ? ?
I hear the Swarfega one is very good, but cannot source it locally, in fact all local stockist were out of stock until tomorrow. Any info much appreciated

Next best is Hypasol,, That's my opinion though,, works great on bouncy castles,,,,very similar to hypalon,

Was in touch with 5 local suppliers today and only one supplier had any TFR in stock, so no choice really, had to get the one available - vechiclean. Reasonably cheap - 16 yoyos for 1 gallon. Will give it a go tomorrow, all going well.

RIBase
Try increasing concentrations (begin at recommended and increase to as much as 50%) on test areas (under back tubes). Don't let it dry on the tubes. Use a 3M pad, but be careful - they can scratch when fresh if rubbed too hard. It slowly attacks rubber and hands, so wear good PPC and wash it off trailer rollers ASAP!!!

Try RIB revive or similar if the final effect is clean but dull.

A few photos would be nice, dude...

Cheers Will - Instructions on the drum say 1/7 for light work and 1/3 for heavily soiled, but my plan was to do as you said, start light and increase as needed. Pics as soon as she is done, hopefully tomorrow

Henshaws recommended cleaning thinners on a rag just damp and wipe it across.
All at your own risk of course
I use washing up liquid which Henshaws also advised

Eventually got round to taking pics, the TFR certainly worked, would definitely recommend. Diluted 2:1 in the end and will have more green pads ready for the next time I do it.

Loving the Orange restoration. Can't imagine why :-)

Any idea who did your screen and rail?
