Hi.

Any tips? I've got all the units cleaned up and will replace the handles but there are bits in the corners where I guess they glued net curtains or something.

I just can't shift it.

I can't get a low enough resolution pic to attach bit it just looks like yellow old glue thatso hard.

Cheers!

Have you tried solvent thinners?

Don't rely on my answer but,

If all else fails you can very carefully, with a flat block, use 240 grit emery paper & a bit of water, sand off most the glue, then change to 500 or 600 grit, still with water (wet'n'dry)*.

Then polish with "T-Cut" that comes from motor accessory shops.

If still a bit dull * go to 1000 or 2000 grit "flour paper" then polish..... it'll end up looking like a Rolls Royce. Good Luck.

My decorator damaged a upvc window sill by accident, he used this process, perfect finish. Saved him paying for a new sill.
