Default Remove CA?

I was gluing tire and I put too much CA. The CA went all over the wheel. How can I remove it?

loctite make superglue remover, use that.

or failing that use nail varnish remover. make sure it has acetone in it. the loctite superglue removers main ingredient is acetone.

ask the people at the lhs if it has acetone in it. that might be why your wheels melted

Default The Joys or tire gluing

Guys;

Next time try using one of the small applicator tips when gluing your next set. This really helps control how the CA comes out of the bottle. (from many glued fingers of experience later)

Best way to glue is to slightly "Pinch" a section of sidewall to pull it away from the Rim, then apply a drop of CA. go around the tire and do this in several places. If you apply too much, use a paper napkin to daub away the excess glue.
Once you've glued one side, wrap about 2 layers of Electrical Tape around the Bead to hold it tight. Use this procedure for the others, gluing 1 side at a time.
When you can no longer smell the CA on the Tire, remove the tape and repeat for the other 4 sides.

*Keep some DE-Bonder handy just in case*
