Guess Brian know that as well, but I recommend to head over to http://forum.miata.net/ and search around there.

And then head back here when you want to buy some snack for your Miata. :)

Try contacting the glue company.

Most products that will dissolve the glue will probably dissolve the gage window also

Acetone and nail polish remover (mostly acetone) will dissolve superglue, but they will also probably fog up the clear plastic cover over the instrument cluster.

I have had some success with the following approach.

Remove any raised glue with a fine wet&dry paper avoiding sanding surrounding area as much as possible..

Using a metal polish and a buffing wheel on a Dremmel polish the damaged area.

The end result will not be perfect but some folk will find the result acceptable.
