    Ok bought a 74 StarCraft StarMaster6 a few years back did a few repairs and the wife, myself and the dog's have enjoyed I have tried to waterproof all the canvas every year (Scotch Guard)
    The bunk ends I have just gone over with soap and water they were dingy when we bought it and I figured was to old to reverse the aging look but today I went over the ends with a Magic
    Eraser and woollite and another pass with a Magic Eraser and Simple Green and wow what a difference but still have some leaf stains that won't remove and still a bit dirty is there anything else I should try that you have had good luck with? I have a picture of on bunk end half done to see the difference IMG_20211017_130243830_HDR.jpg

    That looks good! How can that not be clean enough for you?? It's....perfect!

    Nothing looks as cool as an old Starcraft, except maybe an extra clean one like that.

    It's not that it's looking bad now if you zoom in on the front bunk end there is still some stains from something... Possibly leaves? And tying multiple things and not even a bit came off if it doesn't oh well but if it did it would be awesome.
