Stained Headliner

My new to me boat comes with a stained fabric headliner from previously repaired water leaks. (We are told lol) they are brown in nature so may be a combination of stains from the repaired wet core, or some are possibly run off from metals...IE rusty color.

Any ideas as to cleaning versus replacing?Click image for larger version

I highly doubt that you can clean it. So I'm wondering about fabric paint/dye. Other than cost of doing it you really have nothing to lose as the only other course is to replace it. And i don't think that's cheap.

We used Oxy Clean on stains that looked just like those. Worked well.

Greetings,
Mr. G. I know absolutely nothing about painting headliner BUT a quick search of "fabric paint for upholstery" brought this up as well as several other links I didn't even look at... https://www.sprayitnew.com/

Further surfing found this: http://www.simplyspray.com/product/g...-fabric-paint/
You could do away with your saloon lighting...

Someone on this forum talked about this product. My headliners are getting a bit yellowed so I might try it in a couple of years from now. However, if some TF member would like to be the guinea pig in the meantime, please feel free to post your results. (I feel an RT video coming soon on guinea pigs).
