Default Re: Removing paint flecks from leatherette?

I was given a rather abused Hacker Herald. My neighbour had been greatly impressed by mine, so I fixed the electronics and gave it to him. He spent hours with a small pointed knife blade and magnifier flicking off spots of emulsion paint. He does detailed car interior cleaning, so he had an array of detergents and polishes in stock to get the vinyl back to a show-quality finish. It's now one heck of a looker.

I think flicking individual spots is the only viable approach.
