Default Will Acetone Harm Carbon Fiber?

I've got a B44 that has some CA on the chassis. Will it hurt anything if I use some acetone to remove it?

It shouldn't hurt the graphite but it might take away the shine. I would trya small spot on some old graphite if you have a piece laying around from an old chassis or a small spot on the bottom of the chassis just to see if it dulls the shine.

I will be fine, just dont soak the chassis in acetone for long periods of time...

Thanks guys. I just tried it, and it doesn't appear to have harmed it in any way.
