Anyone had success removing these stains? (pic)

My lettering is a rubbery material. Probably the same most of you have. I inherited these stains from the previous owner. Looks like fender rub. Anyone had luck removing these stains? I'm having a heck of a time with them. Thanks!

As a last resort try magic erasers. They do crazy things but are the equivalent a ridiculously fine sanding.

Try Goo Gone or Goof Off. Both of these removed rub marks on my rub rail that some of the other stuff mentioned wouldn't.

could be discoloration....that is all the way thru... if those are those domed type of letters you may just want to replace.

a number of places make them..you can PM too_tall to see where he got his... or you can find them on the web pretty easy.

when I bought my boat, their was the same thing. I tried acetone and other gunk type removers, but nothing. So I used a high speed buffer and it worked well. Just dont use to much speed and keep feeling them to make sure you dont get the letters to hot or else they will melt and maybe not be as sticky.

be carefull using acetone because if you get it behind the letter, they will start to come off.

Star Brite Black Streak remover. This stuff works very well and does no damage to the surface being cleaned.
