Superglue on C64 Case
While supergluing the "commodore 64 personal computer" badge down on my c64 I accidentally got a bit of superglue on the case. The superglue recommends using Acetone to remove it, but im worried this will discolour the plastic.

I wouldn't risk using acetone on your c64 case as I think you are more likely to melt the plastic rather than remove the glue.
It may also leave a shiney surface on your case when you wipe the solvent off.
I've used carb cleaners containing acetone previously and they sure can make a mess of motorcycle paint / plastics.
Pick as much off with a lolly stick then leave it alone!

Edit: Maybe another path...
From the Krazy Glue FAQ:
Instant Krazy Glue® can be removed with acetone. However, acetone is a pretty powerful solvent and can damage some types of plastic. A safer solvent is nitromethane that can usually be found at specialty hobby stores. Look for products called "de-bonders" containing the nitromethane component. Always be sure to test whatever solvent you choose on an inconspicuous area first to check for compatibility issues.
