I had great results from using GOOF OFF. I used it to clean my vinyl and roof fabric. One thing though, don't let it sit on the material too long. Wipe/spray, let it sit a second or two and wipe away

The tech library has gary hamm's tutorial on the disc brake conversion on birds 58-60. Does anyone know if the original master cylinder provides enough pressure or is another master cylinder required.
