Sharpy and Weak Plastic ?'s

Ok, so I got a Pyhranna Ammo at the Paddlefest swap last week and the previous 2 owners (RMOC and a private boater) felt it neccessary to scribble all over the inside with a magic marker, I would like to remove this mess before putting my name in it. I have only tried 409 so far, anyone have a trick for this?

My other question is about imploded plastic on the side wall. The first time I straped it down on it's side on my stacker bar the side wall imploded. I never had this problem with any of my LiquidLogic boats. I knocked it out pretty well with a rubber mallet, but there is still an indention. Any suggestions for this?

Thanks
Logan

Toluene...

They should have it at true value or cks.

You will also want to get a pair of gloves that toluene cant get through..

Don't squeeze it down so hard. It's 2009 Man, times are tough and plastic is thin.

If you want some Toluene, seeing as how kayakers don't normally have a supply on hand Logan, just bring your Ammo by after work and you can use some of mine. I just got done gluing the third thwart and 4 more d-rings onto my Hyside, so I have plenty lying around.

Thanks guys, I think I will start with the eraser first and work my way up to the toluene, if necessary...
and I really didn't strap it down that hard...

***bad suggestion, sorry, see below***
Maybe nail polish remover. Cheap and you can buy in small quantities. I've used it to remove perm marker on other things before. Not sure about kayak plastic as I've have never tried it on that.
