No matter what solvent you use make sure that you use a fresh surface of the rag or towel every couple of passes so you are picking up the adhesive and not spreading it around, there will be less of a chance of scratches that way.
Good luck Phil

rubber cement thinner, the best, most gentle solvent you can use for removing adhesive on almost all surfaces. It can usually be found at office supply stores or art supply stores, however it is getting harder to find

Just used a skill saw to cut a 12' radius, very clean almost no faring needed, just make sure you leave your line in case faring is needed.

As far as the spacing goes the plans that I got from the MM for my 49 U22 dated 8-25-45 calls for a "1/16" space between all side panels" hope this helps.

what is the process if I just want to make a donation,not large, to help keep the web side of the club going an hour or two longer. I don't see a place on the site where I can send extra funds when my electric bill is less than expected or I get a rebate on my auto insurance.
