JB weld on fender of 03 SVT cobra (Sonic Blue)

Ok so this was about a month ago mu dad was near my car and he had some JB weld on his work pants that he didnt know of and he brushed along my passenger side front fender by the headlight and i have no clue how to get it off without taking the fender of and getting it repainted. Does any have suggestions for this?

Only thing I can think of is really lightly wet sanding on it trying to get only the jb weld until it comes off, then polishing it up. The only good news if you do need to replace it is that new edge fenders are plentiful and sonic blue should not be too hard to find.

Well, since you have nothing to lose... like Scotty said, try CAREFULLY wet sanding the JB weld until it is removed. Hopefully the paint underneath will survive and can just be buffed out. The next "worse case" would be that the clear coat will have to be touched up in that area. Still better and much cheaper than a complete repaint of the fender.

Maybe get a soldering tip hot enough to try to melt the metal and wipe it?
