You can apply some kerosene in a cotton too.
Apply in small amounts.Kerosene can be used to remove even tar.

Default oh boy!

whoa! check out the following links - hope they help you

1. http://www.ehow.com/how_17787_remove-super-glue.html

2. http://www.supergluecorp.com/removingsuperglue.html

3. following from www.tellmehowto.net

' To remove super glue from metal use very hot soapy water.

You need to be patient, and after a few applications, the superglue should be removed.

Note that with very stubborn super glue stains you may need to use almost boiling water to get rid of all the super glue residue.

As with any sort of stain, try to clean as soon as the super glue is applied as it's easier to remove before it sets.

Ofcourse, the last bit isn't very useful to you, is it! good luck - hope the paint work survives.

If all else fails.. use the ever tried-and-tested WD40.

i have removed paint spray fron my car using very fine blade and the polishing it off. you need a steady hand and mind for this, one mistake and the paint gets scraped. you can try this as last resort. the layer must be a bit thick . use a very gentle hand, minor scratctes can be covered up.
i actually broke open a gillette razor to take its blades they are thin and sharp. bend easily, cuts your hand also easily!!!

thanks for all the quick help.
How about get it teflon coated?? as teflon coat is supposed to cover minor scratctes so will this cover up this scar. Also I've a minor scratctes on the back bumper can this be covered by teflon coat??

I've no plans of using gigy way.. no blade.. that to on Innova forget it..
paint is very thin.

This is just an experimental idea:-
If you remove the chrome strip,it may also take that extra glue with it.Then stick it again with care..
But I dont know if it will also peel the colour,So let it be an idea..

Acetone, nail polish thinner, Yes it works.

First try it on the paint somewhere not visible, then if successful, try to remove the super glue.

As I know this is the only liquid that disolves super glue (Cyano Acrilate).

Since you are in bangalore, it should not be too difficult to find a great body shop / automotive detailer. Have it removed from a professional.

Default Tried Com-Paint on White Swift

I had a couple small scratches on the rear bumper and the rear left door edge. Tried com-paint and the color did matched 90%. But a very bad thing happened to me. Sun was shining when I started, and after some time a rain came from no where and it all got messed up. The worst thing was that the com-merge thing was over very quick (I did only some 5 or 6 light sprays). All these coupled with my bad luck gave a messed up output on the bumper and a some what decent work on the door. I had to finish of quickly as my parents where taking the car for a week's time. I tried clicking pics, but since its white color, picture is not so clear. I have sent a mail to Vikram asking for methods for removing the touch up after a week and re-doing it. But believe me, it works well on fine scratches. A good alternative to costly paint jobs, but if something goes wrong as in my case, it's mere bad luck and more pain.
