The vinyl seat had some paint marks on it. I don't
know what sort of paint or when it happened. Google
suggested the solution could be to use anti-bacterial hand
gel as it contains alcohol. It didn't work.
However white spirit shifted it and did not harm the vinyl.

The seat base is very rusty. To use electrolysis or
vinegar I'll have to remove the viinyl and the foam
rubber. Can I put them back? I once got a seat
for a Norton wideline featherbed frame professionally done
by an upholsterer. It was very good. Maybe I'll check
I can get a new
