I left my bazooka sub sitting on my back seat of my boat this winter and the rubber/plastic left a TERRIBLE imprint of the bazooka log on my seat. Anyone have suggestion for cleaning it? Already tried the dreaded bleach white:)

If it is just an imprint try leaving it alone for a few weeks. The vinyl should recover it's shape by then.

If it is stained, it is my understanding you do not want to use bleach products at all on your interior. Try searching the forum for cleaning threads, many have posted on this topic.

Magic eraser? Vinyl cleaner and a scrub brush?

And wash that seat really well and 303 to make sure you get all the bleach off. It'll eat your seams.

If it plasticized it may not come off. Has bleach or any cleaner helped any?

Try a magic eraser with some Spray 9 from West Marine.. If you dont' have a West Marine store in your area, got to www.westmarine.com

The problem with many vinyl stains on this type of upholstery is that often, if the staining object is there long enough (whether it's spider excrement or a subwoofer) it ends up staining the fabric backing of the vinyl too, so scrubbing just the vinyl side may not help. Only thing additional to consider, before buying a new skin or just deciding to live with the stain, is to pull the skin off and scrub the backside too.
