    Painted part has rubber cement residue

    So after so much deliberation with myself, i have finally painted my Kshatriya and it is fantastic! Until the skirt broke off so I decided to use cement go fix it. That's when some residue stick into the plastic, it is small, but very noticeable, what can I do? Should i go ahead and sand it? If I do that, there will be a white part that will be painted with green. Any other alternatives than sanding?
