Upholstery water stains advice please

Hello all, I have recently purchased a 21st Series 1946 Clipper. It has been restored mechanically, including fitting a 282 46 Eight instead of the original 245 six. I am sorting out a few issues with the R9 overdrive at the moment but I was wondering what I may do to remove water stains from the very good condition original upholstery. Any advice on what to use...dry cleaning fluid perhaps? Peter Toet

My wife did my headliner and seats with a 50/50 solution of ammonia and peroxide. She used an upholstery cleaning machine that sprays and then vacuums. But I think you could also use a spray bottle and a wet vac with the same results. That stuff cleans anything around the house. Try it in an inconspicuous place first. Worked good for me.

Hi Gary, thanks for that, did it include any water stains or was it a general cleanup of the upholstery?

My want to remove that door panel and see if it's from mold/mildew or anything before you get it wet.
And address the cause of the leak. They should have waterproofing paper behind panel as the rain goes down inside the door.

Hello Fish N Jim. thanks for your advice ..it is from outdoor storage and water ingress, hopefully, nothing to do with mould/mildew. It is not just a door trim it also has some on the front seat. The material is in very good order....just seeking advice on what other people have found effective in removing water stains that have been there for 50 or so years. I actually need to remove that door card so I shall check out the advised methods. Just hoping that someone has had experience in correcting this malady, without me having to "experiment" too much and ruin the original trim. Peter Toet
