As you can hopefully see past my mad family, my 5.5m Humber's tubes - although good enough and holding well - are pretty faded and very tired looking. I will change them next year or the year after possibly but, as they're not letting me down... they're ok for now. I would though,
like to clean, rejuvenate and paint them with a specialist flexi paint. I've got two questions.....
1.) any orange tubes I've seen painted orange again just don't look right, plus mine are pretty oil and grease stained and I'm not sure the orange will cover some places. Would it be sacrilege to paint them black, hence painting over the oil and black scuff marks? How many coats to completely turn orange tubes to black with new paint? Has anyone done this?
2.) any advice on the best brands of degreaser, cleaning product & indeed paint to buy?
Thanks as always folks!
