Default How can you take CA glue off carbon fiber

How can you take CA glue off carbon fiber? I got a little on my new car and I need someone to tell me how to take it off.

Thanks

That would be your best bet. If the carbon fiber has been produced properly and sealed, it should be fine. Also, if the CA has only been dried for a little while, you should be able to remove it. If it's been on there for over a week or so and totally dried, it might give you a tuff time with just debonder.

Debonder works perfect without damaging the carbon fiber. I have used it without any problems.

ACETONE will remove it but why bother its not going to hurt anything and when the body is on and the car is on the track can you see it, probably not its not about looks its about how fast is it.

i got some no a chassis before..trying someones method of sealing it.

i got some acetone on a bit of cloth, put a cpl of drops of water on it and wiped it off..it left a bit of the white stuff but u can just wipe that off with some clean water...and you can never tell it had been on there.

but be careful of getting it onto the sides, if it takes away the glue there is a chance it will get into the layers of CF and melt the glue there also..and obviously delaminate the chassis.

Nail polish removers seem to work as well, not as harsh. If i am not wrong they contain a certain % of acetone.

Hi,

NEVER EVER USE ACETON OR AN ACETON RELATED PRODUCT!!!!

Aceton will harm the carbon fibre top layer!

Use a more friendly product such as green soap.

Use Debonder. Work perfect on any material. Use soft cloth and put a little debonder on the surface and wax it.
