    Hey all, I was wondering if someone could give me advice regarding the removal of supergule residue on a plastic TF. I had a tube explode while working on a custom Alternator. The bottle says use nail polish remover with acetone, but I've been told that it may eat through the plastic. Would paint thinner work? Would anything else work? Thanks in advance.

    The nail polish with acetone won't eat through the plastic unless you leave it soaking in it. I don't know if it will remove the glue or not. Where did you get that info at?

    If its on a toy that you are going to paint. Just cut off the spots of glue, carefully, with a sharp knife and then sand the areas down with fine sandpaper. Then paint it. You could just cut off the glue but it will be a dull finish. Maybe sand the whole thing and then add some clear coat. Good luck
