Default stained seats

I trashed my driver seat last night out testing. I had a black magic marker in my pocket and ink bleed all over my new seat . I have tried everything from laquor thinner to a steam cleaner. I'm so pissed off I recked my seat. Any ideas how to get this stain out?

If it is a Sharpie try using isopropyl or ethyl alcohol.

Or you could try some 151 rum

Pat,
Summit sells a Vinyl Paint that works pretty good. It may be the least expesive alternative.
Thanks again for offering to fix my headers-I just picked them up yesterday from a local welder. See you in Ocean City!

My wife did that on my Scarab seats and it worked great! You can still see the Permeant Marker but it cleaned up 80% of it.

Someone said WD40 works too but I never tried it.
