Tubes worn / sun damaged
Hi, Iím looking for some advice on tube condition and repair.
Where the tubes have been exposed to the sun, there are areas of damage or wear. It looks like the material has lost its smooth top coating and is worn down to a kind of gauze layer. I have tried cleaning the tubes with August Race Rib Tube Cleaner but removing the dirt just exposed the damage more so I stopped.
This is a 2011 Brig Falcon which I believe means the material is Hypalon.
There are no leaks, just cosmetic.
What are my options? Patching, some kind of treatment, or just leave it?
Could cleaning it make it worse?
