    Hi All
    Trying to clean up my 1974 van - the interior head lining is stained (brown?) in various patches
    Is there a way of removing or at least reducing this
    Ta Ian

    It can either be very old glue from when it was installed or (gulp) it could be rust coming through from where your pop top may have rust hidden underneath. Try a couple of different things like Nifty and Jif (cream cleanser) but be careful not to rub too hard as if it is original then they are starting to get some age. Another option is to spray it with vinyl spray paint but you will probably need to spray the whole roof lining so it doesn't look patchy.

    Cheers Melissa - will give it a go -If I need to resort to vinyl spray - is it hard to apply ? (or just like any other spray pack?)

    It will be the glue bleeding through from the back of the vinyl, it won't clean out, as said painting it with vinyl spray paint is the only remedy
