    Removing Super Glue from visor... HELP!

    I thought I could apply some Super Glue in small amounts
    around the visor without getting any on the front of the
    visor... I was wrong.

    Now I need some pointers on the best way to get this crap off.
    There isn't a whole bunch and it's barely noticable, but it
    bugs me. Any ideas?

    Please help!

    I can tell you what not to use- Goo Gone. It will ruin the finish.

    Your pretty much screwed. You can try super glue remover. If that don't work, you can try and sand it down and plish the scratchs out. That is what I had to do on my 95.

    If that doesn't work, you can try using a Dremel with a polish wheel. Press very lightly on the affected area. It should remove the glue without scratching the visor. If you press too hard, however, the wheel might actually cut into the visor, leaving a permanent gash. I know from first-hand experience.

    Try Nail Polish Remover.. I used it on scale models in the past. But to be fully honest I have never tried it on clear parts. Test it on a scrap piece then try to follow through with what Rammage had suggested.

    Use the heat from the Glue gun, heat up the glue and rub it off- The same thing happened to my visor, just heated it up and rubbed it off.
