    Taking JB weld off

    My little brother and his friend were kicking around a soccer ball in the house. Well, it flying through the air and hit my helmet, sending it crashing to the floor. The visor snapped and I had to take it out, but now I have globs of JB Kwik in my helmet and they're in the way of where my new visor will go. Is there a compound or something that will dissolve the putty or should I just keep trying to pry it off with a screwdriver?
    Thanks for any help,
    TF

    I would say you have a SNAFU,,, better off with sand paper.

    If you can get a dremel (or similar) in there that would make your world alot easier.. if not.. then try a rasp or file and file it down.. and if that fails... sand paper...

    sorry about your situation.. that has really got to suck..
