Default WTF!? How to remove Car Model Cement (glue)?

So, I finaly called that last owner of the car up and asked him what he used around the edges of the decals on the car and WHAT does he say....

He went to walmart and bought the cement pen used on model cars!

How do you remove this stuff? I have tried warm/hot water...nothing and even using a hair dryer and still nothing!

They are on the paint. It is the Trans Am (both sides), Pontiac, Ram Air, and the front Bird decals

Call up the number on the glue tube and see what they say.. Make sure it wont take the paint off.

A little lacquer thinner on a rag outta make short work of it. As long as it's not fresh paint and you only use a little it shouldn't hurt the paint. You'll wanna wax it afterwards. Hopefully it didn't eat into the clear coat. I don't know how that kind of glue reacts with urethane clear. I know on model cars it actually chemically melts the plastic so it sticks together.
