Orange Spots!

I have 2 very small orange spots that have appeared on my sunpad.
I am not sure what they are. Anyone have any ideas??? Fungus???

I do know they are not wanting to come out.

Things I have tried thus far:
-Magic eraser
-Fantastik with rag
-MasterCraft foam interior cleaner with rag
-MasterCraft foam interior cleaner with brash brush (very light scrubbing)
-303 vinyl cleaner with rag
-303 vinyl cleaner with brass brush (very light scrubbing)

Anyone have any other ideas other than replacing the vinyl?

I may try simple green next or some type mold and mildew cleaner.

My boat is stored in my garage and is only outside for it's cleaning and to hit the lake.

The spots are not bad and you probably wouldn't see them unless I pointed them out, but I am a bit particular about the boat and it's cleanliness.

Zep cleaner won't do it Erk, you know that.......

I am tempted to try Babes myself to clear up the same issue.
I did have success fading the orange with Simple Green but can't make it dissapear.

mildew remover has worked for me in the past on removing all stains..
just make sure to thoroughly wash it off and immediatley drench, soak, smother with 303..

Your right Mark!

Sales are dry for Erk so the Boat Pimp has had to resort to being the Hoe himself!!!

I do believe it is some type of mold. How it gets there is beyond me.....

I also have these damn bugs that when trailering have hit and smashed on the vinyl. They too leave an orange type substance that is a biatch to get off...
