If you use acetone, make sure you give it a good wash down afterwards as it may eat the gelcoat.

Eucalyptus oil is good for removing gummy/sticky residue.

Getting closer. Nothing to see yet. Pulled the 350 yesterday. Got some new electronic wizardry from perfect pass to run the fly by wire throttle. Waiting for parts.
