Default I'm a moron..stained my seats! Help.

OK..I will admit it- I must have mistakenly eaten a retard sandwich before installing my Capt's Call exhaust system.

I was buttoning everything up, and had 2 leftover pieces of the 4" rubber coupling that for whatever reason- I sat on my rear WHITE seats. I came back the next day, and I have 2 circles in the seat- it looks almost like an oil/tar stain.

I tried Softscrub..I have tried the Starbrite white vinyl cleaner, tried a mix of bleach/Dawn detergent..NOTHING has fazed it.

Can anyone recommend anything else?

Worse case I can get the seats recovered..but have no idea who could even do it. Any advice there would be appreciated also.

Thanks in advance.

Try a magic eraser. They work great.

Try some wax and grease remover, like "3m prekleano"
find it at autobody supplies, use a little at first to make sure it doesn't hurt the fabric

Try the MR Clean magic eraser, I swear it is the coolest thing ever invented. And no hazardous chemical dump on your vinyl.

I've seen the erasers at our local hardware stores.


Bud and Tar remover?
