i am such a fool ... yesterday i gave the weekly visit to this car (http://www.meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=4051) I must admit i NEVER thought it would come off bu t i gave it a shot none the less. You see the owner of this car is doing some renovations to his wifes investment unit & she accidentally left some white paint finger prints in the passenger door trim. It had been there for quite a while. I told them i would remove the stain when i get the appropriate product. Well luck had it that i was removing a small spot from the seat with my cloth and trim detailer & for some weird reason i decided to read the instructions again (out of boredom) while i wait for the product to penetrate the stain. Anyhow i noticed that it said it works on vinyl. Well about 2 minutes after the seat stain was gone..... so was the paint

i just wish i'd bothered to take a before picture. It really impressed both the owner & myself. So a big thankyou for this product Meguiars ... :xyxthumbs & i hope some1 else may remember this thread if this happens to them.

I'm glad to hear that they came off SK! Just out of curiosity, what type of paint was adhered to the vinyl? Latex paint?

RP :D

Hi Rockpick

it was just ordinary house paint that hadnt been cleaned off his wifes hands properly and it left ghost like finger prints on the black interior
