Post by old man » Mon May 22, 2017 5:09 pm

I found a nos vinyl top for the m15. when I opened the box and found all the talc I first started by brushing it off, so much was stuck I tried scrubbing, then pressure washing. I still have a lot still holding tight on the vinyl.

That was originally talc before dampness, heat and time turned it into a cement type product. Most people I have talked to have used mineral spirits or xylene. I would be careful with them and get them off as soon as possible. I have also heard of using WD-40.
