need help

ok. so i go to a friends house and grab my phone out of the trunk of my bike. not paying attention, i lock my keys in the trunk and when trying to pull my bag out of it while pulling up the end of my seat cowl, i snap it where the brackets attached. got my keys, rode to walgreens, buy some superglue and go to work on that . now...i put so much superglue that when i put the seat cowl back on, some of the dripped on the paint. i know i know, its my fault for being impatient. My question is, how the **** do i get the glue off the paint without damaging it or am i screwed? i really dont want to get it repainted but i somehow have a feeling thats what im gonna have to end up doing. BUT if i dont have to repaint, ill be really happy. its hard to go a day without my baby. please help. Anyone have any suggestions.

think a problem you are going to have is the superglue and anti-superglue are both solvent based, meaning, the paint will most likely be disolved as well as the plastic ... no bueno
