    I Got SuperGlue On My Car Paint! How Do I Take It All Off?

    I was trying to fix my newly installed side marker because it kept on popping off. I decided to use some superglue to try to fix it. I new how much of a mess it was so I tried to do it very carefully. However, I failed. Now, I can't get it off completely! I tried a bunch of different things but nothing works!!! Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!


    Before



    After



    Steps I Used.

    1 - Mr. Clean Magic Eraser
    2 - Dawn Dish Soap
    3 - Meguairs Gold Class Car Was Shampoo & Conditioner
    3 - Meguairs Smooth Surface Clay Kit & Meguairs Ultimate Quik Detailer
    4 - Meguairs Ultimate Compound
    5 - Meguairs NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0

    That Mr. Clean thing stripped off my car wax. It helped take some of the superglue off but it's hard to get into that corner. I'm gonna try again later when I wash my car again when I get my new rims. ops: darn SUPER GLUE = FTL :evil:

    I did a search and saw the MR Clean Magic Eraser mentioned quite a few times. Just be very careful with it.

    From what i have read and from what i have seen done in my shop it doesn't look like you will be able remove the glue.It burns into the paint as soon as it touch's the surface.Our detail department has never been able to remove glue once it set's it self in.Would be intrested if you find a way to remove it.

    Please, I haven't tried this on SuperGlue, but it worked great on baked in pine tree drippings. Berryman's B-12 Chemtool. It's meant for cleaning fuel injectors. I used it on the pine drippings and bam, they were gone. I also used it on the clearcoat of the car and did no real damage. Have a bucket of clean water and a sponge available toquickly wash it off. Totally removes the wax so you'll have to re-wax. Good luck.

    Here is what i would try. Try heating up the glue around the light, make sure you apply some pressure to the new turn signal(just to be safe in case it were to fall off)

    You could use a hair dryer or any other tool that gives off a good amount of heat but not harmful to the paint.

    Or the heat could harden the glue more.

    Acetone will easily remove the cyanoacrylate - but be very careful, it can remove your paint, too!

    Lightly damp an old T-Shirt (or Q-tip if you want more precision) with Acetone, and try a couple of really quick swipes. The Cyanoacrylate should melt immediately. Every swipe or two, turn the rag to a clean section, re-apply a small amount of Acetone, and swipe again until the surface is clean. The cyanoacrylate will be re-deposited onto the rag.

    Try this at your own risk, as the Acetone could create a bigger problem than you've got on your hands, now!

    Hope this helps.
