Best way to remove old glue is by using Toluene which is a solvent, but can be brought from Home Depot, I would not recommend using Acetone as it eats away at the fabric.
If it is still stubborn and you can not remove it, use a rotary sanding tool which attaches to a drill and very lightly sand the glue away, but not to take of the surface of the material.

This works:-
(not posting pic direct as it's huge)

Use it lightly, it'll clean the hypalon at the same time and it's ready for regluing.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
