Convertable Top Help

Hey there,
I just got my 96 gt about a month ago and i noticed that these little black spots starting to appear i thought it was dirt and took the car to my car wash. It didn't come out. So i took matter into my own hands and got some raggtop cleaner and a sponge and scrubbed as hard as i could to get it out. Some of it came off but most of it is still there. Any Suggestions on how to get it out? I've included some pictures its a vinyl top not fabric and the cleaner i have been using. Thanks for the input.

Paint won't remove the spots. Have you tried scrubbing a little with a brush? If it's real bad I suggest using an all purpose cleaner that is safe on vinyl.

303 is great cleaner. http://303products.com/index.php/303...p-cleaner.html

Yeah try their cleaner it's magic in a bottle. I also spray on and let it sit while. Then remist and lightly agitate it with a brush, let it sit again, aggitate, sit about 2-3 minutes hose off. Don't let it dry on there.
