Gasket material removal

Finally some time to get back to the build.

I put in the banana vent grills with Permatex black ultra. I used a small hex head screw from the back through the grill and three pieces of wood (top, center and bottom) to secure them while drying. For those that haven't done this yet, this is done easiest when the rear splash guards are not in. Thank fully I made access panels to get to the rear light harness so I was able to work it from there.

Unfortunately the Permatex bled through the front and is visible in places.

I see that Permatex makes a remover for their products but not sure if that would ruin the paint?

What have you guys used to remove gasket makers?

Good to see you back at it. Is that visible line of black actually doing anything? You should be able to poke it out with a screw driver from the outside and possibly pliers from the inside. I wouldn’t get any kind of remover close to your paint. Make a new one before that.
