Lacquer Thinner - Safe around fiberglass?
Okay, everyone here has been a big help in my boat rebuild. Well, today I ripped off some more linoleum, this time off of the seats. Now, there is still some cardboard backing and a lot of contact cement stuck to the wood. I know that I can remove contact cement from wood using laquer thinner, but is this safe to have around the interior fiberglass? May as well take 5 minutes to ask a question rather than chance it and make an even bigger mess.
As an aside, when I started this project, I had intended to do the bare minimum to get this boat sailing. Well, every time I turn around I say, "one more little project wouldn't hurt." The inside of the boat is almost totally ripped out now, and I had just intended to do a surface clean up. Oh well, good thing I have a long winter up here to get all of the little projects done. Nothing huge, just enough little annoying things have been done to this boat over the years in a very slip shod manner, and I would really like to turn it back into something I can be proud of.
