We recovered the build sheets for our Mach from under the driver seat. Unfortunately they have a LOT of water/dirt/rust stains. Any tried and true methods for cleaning these sheets up without destroying the paper or ink? I have been told that soaking them in a bath of solvent (like prepsol or laquer thinner) works well. Also, is there anyone re-printing these sheets if we supply the data? I have heard Osborne Reproductions may be a source.

There was a letter asking the same exact question in Bob Perkins' "Resto Roundup" in an issue of Mustang Monthly several months ago, maybe a year ago, time flies. Someone who religiously keeps their back issues (unlike me) should be able to dig it up. Bob had a secret recipe/solution to soak it in. The whole process was explained, and I don't remember a bit of it. Sorry!
