Greg,

 

Try using a majic eraser, made by Mr. Clean. If that don't work, go over the seat lightly with a little rubbing compound, then armoral.

I found take just a tiny bit of a product called "Gum Cutter" put it on a towel and rub it over. Magic erasers work as well.

I use white wall tire cleaner and a soft brissel brush then wash off with water.

WD-40 works on many things. The real secret on anything you use is, put it on and let it stand, wipe and repeat til grime is gone.

How about rust stains?  The 56 RER I bought last Fall has old rust staining on an otherwise good yellow seat cushion.  Haven't tried anything yet, but the 56 is my next project.   ~~  Lowell

Lowell,

 

I'd try the majic eraser first, and see how that does. I was going to recommend some CLR, but I don't know if that will bleacher the vinyl or not. Oxy Clean might work, but again, I don't know if it will bleach it or not.

 

I experiment with a lot of different cleaners and products on various types of items, but removing rust stains from vinyl is one that I haven't tried yet. I should buy some old used seats off of ebay when they are aren't worth anything, just to have something to practice on. A couple bucks for an old worn seat wouldn't be much of a lose if it gets ruined. Too bad I never kept any of my old seats that I replaced.

Soft Scrub with Bleach is an option to consider.

You did a super good job of cleaning the seat, how long did it take you. You are luck it has not got any tears or rips in it which seem to have a habit of doing.
