    Help! Cleaning Brake Fluid stain off ABS plastic BMW Fairing

    Looking for advice for removing a stain from ABS plastic - DOT 4 brake fluid leaked and stained a bright yellow BMW Motorcycle Fairing.

    The fairing is made of a high grade ABS plastic, the color is not paint it appears to run through the material. I've tried removing with cleansers with no success. Polishing with a fine abrasive helped but did not completely remove the stain. The fairing plastic did not bubble - but you can still see the stain drip marks beneath the master front brake cylinder.

    Any Ideas?

    Can you post up some pics please? In my experience chemical stains, specifically on plastic/plastic type materials, unfortunately are usually permanent.
