Ackermance1 r. temu#58620511Just tried pinning the one that ended up not staying put and I just snapped the other joint. Kill me. I guess I'm now in the market for a replacement jacket. If you know anyone that's parting out their Chuuya or has a jacket to spare, send them my way, please... Thank you for all of your help

Depending on where you ordered you could email GSC and ask for a replacement part. Sometimes they give them out.

Try mineral/vegetable oil or lotion; it'll soften the super glue and will make it easy to peel off. That's what I use remove super glue from my hands. I just hope the plastic isn't too porous but I'd imagine oil is easy to wash off compared to glue....

Warm (not hot) salt water can help with most super glue. Let it soak a bit and then gently rub over the area where the super glue is.

As for reattaching it, you can possibly use the metal pin method to make it stronger. Even clipping off a big of a paper clip for the metal pin. Then drill a tiny hole into both other parts and super glue the pin into both sides to join them. It really helps having that extra bit go between both.

Ok, so I soaked it for a while and that dampened the tissue, but not enough to just wipe it off. I grabbed a nail file and got it to where the spot is smooth. There's still glue there, but it's just not as visible. Unfortunately, I think my efforts are going to be wasted because I tried gluing the joint back onto the jacket, and I don't think it will last... Since I tries gluing it before (obviously) the piece didn't fit as well due to the dried on glue on the jacket... It might hold, but it took me a but to get the jacket to accept the joint.... I appreciate everyone's help though! Only time will tell if what I did works :/

I can help! Sort of. It's going to be a little tedious and it's not 100% risk free, but if you're patient, you'll get that glue off without damaging the paint.

You'll need very fine sandpaper. I think anywhere between 300 and 400 grit would be the safest. You can find them at your local hardware or hobby store, or you can get them online. It might even be a good idea to get a sandpaper set with multiple grits, like Tamiya Finishing Abrasives.

1. Cut a small piece of the paper and glue it onto a q-tip. The tiny size will give you more precision, and the light squish of the cotton will make the sandpaper more flexible. Rub it gently over the area where the super glue is stuck to your piece. The finer the sandpaper, the more time it will take to eat into the glue. Be careful not to get too aggressive with the sandpaper, and check regularly to make sure you're not getting into the paint.

2. When almost all the glue is cleared away, switch to a finer grit, so it takes less away with each swipe.

3. When the glue is completely gone, go over it just a few times with an ultra fine grit, like 2000, to polish any accidental scratches and tiny abrasions.

Maybe you could try rubbing a damp cloth against the affected area? With luck, that may remove the tissue fibers at least. Otherwise, I'd do what LemonMintCat suggested.
I hope you find a solution soon!

My best guess is to soak the piece in warm soapy water for a good while, like few hours, and the try to gently scrape it with a razor blade. Basically to try to weaken the part where the glue is touching the paint.

As someone else said do not use acetone it will strip the paint right off(I have used it to purposely remove paint from a nendo). I also wouldnt try any other solvents bc they probably would also dissolve the paint, since its a thin layer of glue. Maybe a low percentage of rubbing alcohol(isopropanol), like dilute it significantly if you chose to use it, normally sold as 60%. Or if you have a clear drinking alcohol(ethanol), it would be the most gentle bc its already dilute and ethanol is the smallest molecule. Maybe dip a qtip and very gently rub off the top layer of glue.

The real problem is superglue is a polymer chain of H,N,O,C compound, and so you sort of need at least C,H,O compound to get it unstuck or dissolve, which pretty much will likely dissolve the paint.

Anyhow, I hope someone else has some better advice for you soon.

Acetone bad. Nail polish remover has acetone in it.

Rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover, better try the first one.
