    know how your feeling. Simply pva the area and a coat of bonding to bring out past the adhesive. Wait a few hours till this has set, non greasy, then multi finish on top

    if you dont fancy skimming over the addy use a steamer to soften it, you will find its very easy to scrape off

    true, never thought about a steamer. Would be better to use one of them to take it all off then pva and skim
