Joe, most hobby shops sell a super glue or instant glue spray remover for just that sort of thing...................well, more for gluing your fingers together.

Be careful though, I would try the solvent on one of your spare side covers, or somewhere beneath the tank first..............

If you wait long enough it may fall off on its own :shock:

I've never had much luck getting super glue to last long. I have come to the conclusion that it is really only good for glueing hard hats to I-beams like they do in the commercials. The only other practical use for it is to hold to parts together long enough for the epoxy to set!

We sell Loctite products here,and the best instant adhesive money can buy is Prism 454 gel...PRISM 454 is a clear gel adhesive, ideal for porous substrates. As a surface insensitive Prism cyanoacrylate, it is ideal for difficult to bond substrates, including rough, porous and acidic surfaces. Fills gaps up to .010".
This stuff holds everything from tennis shoes to steel..I glued a broken handle on a ceramic coffee cup 2 years ago,and it is still holding,even after washing over and over in hot water..

JD9613 had a great solution by sanding and polishing,but if you don't want to sand,then try this debonder

I have been building giant scale rc planes for years and always keep debonder on hand.You should appy a small amount and then massage it in.Do this a few times and you will see it start to soften up enough to where you can wipe it away.You will probably have to still do soame polishing

The acetone in the nail polish remover will remove the glue but, it will dull the clearcoat and look like the glue is still there. Use a fine polishing compound, or polish wax and elbow grease to make it shiny again.
