Default How to remove CA glue from CF?

I need to know how to remove CA glue safely from the shiny face of my CF shock tower. By the way the 3 racing parts are the bomb.

I think acetone is supposed to work pretty good, or nail polish remover that has acetone in it.

Quickest way is an X-Acto knife, since its a flat surface you can scrape it across pretty easilly without cutting into the CF laminate.

First X-Acto knife, then pure acetone, (nail remover has oil and other stuff in it) but it will not be shiny any more.
You will have to use some metal polisher and everything will be o.k
