IT's not really green, more close to black. Yes it is all over the top but some spots seem to be worse like you can see in the pictures where the bars under the top are pushing up, there are no stains there. ???????

That may not be a stain but the actual color of the material showing thru. The top coloring may be erroding away because of UV or acidity of rain etc.

Try acetone in a small out of the way spot.

It may not be worth it but the top can probably be sprayed or dyed. Look for outfits that dye boat sails or a good body or reopulstery shop

Do a search in google

I don't think it came with spots and stains from the factory but maybe i'm wrong.

Well, if you've tried all the best known remedies to clean it up to you liking & so far no good, then perhaps the next thing to do is go to an upholstery shop & let them give an estimate/opinion. I've got no other ideas more than have already been mentioned. Good luck with it

I am about to go to Wal-Mart and get a few new ideas. I'll post the results. Thanks for all of the help!

I have the same color top and it looked worse than yours. Bleach and a good scrub brushtook it off, except for the part under the rear window. Like what Poobs said I can see the Black underneath showing through in that one spot.

If worse comes to worse, you can get a new top. I thought they were very expensive, however, the shops in my area will install a new top at this time of the year for $550. Thatis reusing the rear window. They told me to add another $200 for a new one with the defroster. If I get a few bucks, mI`m going to get rid of my tan top, & get a black one put on.

Try that new Arm and Hammer erasor sponge. Maybe something as simple as that will help. They advertise to remove mold and mildew. Its worth a shot.
