Went and got the attachment, glue all gone in 20 minutes.
Just be careful, keep the pad moving across the glue, RPM low, <3000, and low pressure. Patience with this thing does get rewarded.

After removing the glue, I sloshed a liberal amount of Acetone over the de-glued area and wiped it dry to even out the colour variations.

I did apply a bit too much pressure in one area and it quickly wore through the coloured surface to the cloth below - didn't matter as it was a wear patch and can be replaced.

It'll be fine. Just be gentle to start with 'til you get the feel for it.

Should be able to find different grits (probably the wrong term, as it's the sponge weave that determines the grit, rather than the grit) for the wheel. Get the finest one you can find.
