Cigarette stains...help!!!

As the title suggests... the previous owner has kindly left a large nicotine stain on the roof liner of my precious GTV. The problem is the more i have tried to eradicate it with stain removers the larger the stain gets!!!!
I've tried 1001 carpet stain remover, which to be honest has worked wonders in the past, and another non-branded nicotine stain remover from the 'betterware' catalogue. Both have removed the darker patches however i'm left with a larger smudge of light orange

Any and All suggestions welcome however unconventional!!!!

Many thanks in advance......sam

Take up chain smoking while driving, eventualy you may get a colour match.
Seriously what bigjim said should work.
