First attempt at rubstake repair

I'll have to check my purchase paperwork, but I'm pretty sure I'm outta warranty.
I think NCP may have given me a bottle of glue, but will have to check.
How do you remove old glue?
Any tips?

Shoot, really? Sand paper, dremel, multi tool - just get it all off and cleaned up. Tape it off before applying.

I believe the glue is Clifton and yes you should have enough left for that little area.

Assuming acetone or some other chemical to easily remove is a no?
Is this the right glue?

If you're power sanding, I'd pass on the solvent. It gums stuff up as the glue softens. Go slow, and make sure you position the tool to only hit the glue.

If you're working by hand with a scotchbrite pad, then MEK or toluene will help. Acetone flashes off too fast to be of much use.

It is a small area and piece that I will be working with. The scotchbrite sounds like a good first start.

Go for a genuine Scotchbrite, not a looky likey pan scrubber.

Dollar stores often have them; Home Depot if you're desperate. 3M is better than just about any other, but be prepared to change out pretty often in any case. Might also help to soak a piece of paper towel in MEK/Toluene, and tape over the area for 10 minutes or so to soften up the glue, then attack with the scouring pad. Watch the area outside where you're aiming to avoid damage.

I had a lot of luck with the 2" surface prep disks on and air powered die grinder. They are like the scotchbrite pad material
