Same stuff as Malco leather and vinyl cleaner.
Seems its only the white vinyl. My 06 X2 is the same way if the OE MC cover sits on it for more than a few hrs in the sun.
But my buddies 06 X15 with very light grey vinyl does not do this. His sits all summer on a open lift with a MC cover and no discoloration.
It's a problem inherent to the white vinyl.

I have a 06 X2 new to me with white vinyl, and so far no issues (knock on wood).

Previous owner never stored it outdoors, covered. Frankly, it was never covered, ever, except towing in the rain. He stored it in a storage unit uncovered 100% of the time.

If you have to order new Skins , I have been told last year was the last year Mastercraft would have skins for an 06 unless you find a dealer that has some left, Our dealer sends out a msg every year that reminds you if you need to order skins, Think they only make them for 6 years

If they r shot who cares what u try. I thought this was a organism in between that caused it. I would start with magic erasor then go to charcoal lighter fluid.......

I think using abrasive cleaners is what causes this in the first place. I used to clean my upholstery with magic earasers and/or products containing bleach whenever i would get a little bit of mold. Eventually it started looking like this and I would just up the magic eraser use. It would look good for a few days and then come back. The vinyl has a protective layer that prevents mold and mildew. I think once youv'e removed that layer the vinyl is shot. I ended up replacing the skins on my boat and now after 3 years they are still perfect. I only clean them with mild soap and use 303. If they get a little bit of mildew I leave it in the sun.

So I need new skins and they don't make them anymore? that sounds like bad company policy... I bought a Mastercraft for that exact reach, Quality! gonna go look on MC now to see if they have them.
