The Spyder is running well except today I misread the fuel gauge and when it was at the beginning of the red section on the fuel gauge it really did mean that it was empty. Embarrassed The door cards at some stage have had a coat of black spray over them thus covering up the tan matching the seats. I just wondered if anyone had an idea for removal other than paint stripper, brake fluid was one thought I had,
Any pointers would be gratefully appreciated

Hi Alan,
I would try 2K paint thinners. Put some on a rag and try a corner. Should take it off without damaging the vinyl. Normal (cellulose) thinners will also do it. I use both for that job and find the 2K thinner works better with removing vinyl paints.
Paint stripper is extremely aggressive stuff and I wouldn't use it on vinyl. Brake fluid I can't comment on.

It might be worth giving brake cleaner a try too.
