I have a small spot of grey primer on the drivers seat of my car and was wondering if there is any way to get it off without harming the finish.

MB TEX is the Vinyl-like material that Mercedes Benz uses on wagons, diesels, high-stress or lower-cost applications. While nearly as nice as true leather, MB TEX wears much better.

Hope this helps...Lee

I finally got the paint spot off. I used vinylex, a brush and a small flat bladed screwdriver as a scraper. My method was as follows:

A squirt of vinylex on the spot, then I worked it into the stained area, then VERY CAREFULLY AND GENTLY scratched at the paint spot with the flat edge of the screwdriver.

Repeat the above steps until the paint is gone.
It can't be stressed enough, to be very careful with the screwdriver, or you could scratch or puncture the MB-Tex.

Man, I really like this Vinylex!!
