Default How Best To Remove Rubber Cement From Drum Shells?

I am rewrapping three early 1960's Slingerland drums. They came to me with a poor rewrap job that was easy to remove from the shells. The wrap was probably easy to remove because the glue (rubber cement) was glopped on, and still not hardened. I am wide open to suggestions for the best methods to remove the glue. Mineral spirits?
No matter how far you push the envelope, it is still stationery.
