Default Any ideas for removing this stain??

I had advertised this old steering wheel in the swap shop. Received payment from a member here (Our Scarab 34) and went out to the garage to get it and box it up to ship.

I get out there, pick it up......awe chit, it's stained!!!

I had sat it down on top of an old Poker Run sticker and my guess is that the heat and humidity made the stain transfer over.

My wife and I have tried Swipes, Clorox and Magic erasers for the last three days with very little results.

Before anyone says it, I've refunded Aaron's $$$

Anyone have any ideas before i throw the phucking thing in the trash?

Laquer thinner.If that doesn't work,put it on your golf cart. Seriously,the thinner my take a little color out,but should take the ink out.

Gasket Remover very light then wipe off with water. Took out purple stain from a throw rug on my white vinyl.
