Rermoving Construction Adhesive ?
Finally warmed up around here (at least enough to go out and work on the boat).
Been stripping out the inside, any loose boards, doors, drawers, locker covers, etc that I can take in the shop to work on when it gets cold again, then I plan on scrubbing and cleaning the remaining interior wood work (as weather permits)
Pulled the curtains off the windows (ports?) and found a rope trim "glued" around the openings.. Over the years the rope has hardened, shrunk and is falling off...I pulled the rest of it off, but now am left with "Liquid Nails" construction adhesive on the fiberglass/port edge...
Probably a moot question, but is there anyway to remove the hardened adhesive without damaging port/glass...?
Otherwise I'll probably grind it out/smooth it out the best I can with a Dremel tool and either paint the edge or reapply new rope trim with appropriate adhesive to cover damage...
Open to suggestions...
