    I've just bought a second-hand 23" ACD and there were 3 stickers on it, 1 on either side on the glossy plastic, and one one on top.
    I managed to lose the glue on top with an iKlear wipe and some elbow grease, but the ones on the sides wouldn't budge.
    Hastily :)o) I grabbed some nail polish remover (propanone) and daubed/rubbed a spot on the side and then wiped it off, but it soon became apparent that the top 1/4 of the panel has now lost its glossy laquer where it was rubbed, as it is smoother, duller and streaky :(
    (I know propanone's a solvent, it was stupid but I wasn't really thinking!)

    Does anyone know a way to one, get rid of the glue from the second side panel without damaging the plastic, and two, if there's a way to repair the damage to the affected side? It's hard to see but I'd really prefer for it to be fixed.. Thanks!

    That stuff is amazing. It is probably your best bet.
