I think you have everyone stumped, not sure how to get super glue off your paint without really screwing it up. The people that make super glue say to use acetone, it's the active ingredient in nail polish remover. I've used it on a painted surface before without any damage but I would be REAL careful. Too much and you could soften the paint. I would say goo-gone for a normal removal but I don't think it's going to touch super glue.
