i feal for you man. wish i could help
Try using some nail polish remover on the superglue...though it might screw the dash up.
acetone should get the glue off
for super glue, go to walmart brign 5 bucks, go to the auto section, pick up 3m adhesive remover. works and doesn't damage a thing, for interior i would spray it on a cloth first. just read the back of the can and make sure it wont harm, but i know it works great on exterior. its in a green blue can. for neons, check grounds and fuses. unfortunatly your description of setup really isn't to detailed
well the neon set up is like this 2 up under where your feet rest, and another beetween the driver seat and the console and the string light i explained before they were origionaly all had the cigarette lighter plug but i cut them of split the two wires and stripped them to expose the wires, now the thing it wires into plugs into the cig lighter and has 2 hoses with like some metal thatits supposed to touch, and then theres two like clips above them that hold it im place exactly like how you wire in speakes on most stereos, that the best i can explain it
Also, super glue melts most polycarb and ABS plastics. The Acetone will definitely melt the plastic as well.
