I am going to remove the decals on my 1991 Supra SunSport. What is the best way to remove them without damaging the gelcoat?? Any suggestions?? <BR> <BR>Thanks, Dallas (no not the city)

you can use a hair dryer. Works great.

Well on my 91 Sunsport is was a complete BITCH getting mine off hopefully yours wont be so hard if you have access to a heat gun I would highly recommend using it if not a hair dryer can be used it's not as affective but it'll work mine were so brittle (for some reason) when using the heat gun I could get about 2 inches at a time luckily I work at a Ford dealership and in our body shop the have this big rubber wheel that attaches to an air gun and rubs the decals off like it's nothing . . . . There are a few ways to do it but heat gun or hair dryer might be your best bet

that looks just like Joe Roth's old Sunsport . . . I swear I must have gotten the only 91 Sunsport with that crap ass pink and purple colors everyone else has the cool colored Sunsports

I am ditching the Miami Vice teal/Pink and Purple look as well. I'm not complaining though. I'm just happy to be on the water!! I bought this boat from a buddy who is the original owner. Not sure who Joe Roth is. I'm in Round Rock, Texas.

Joe was selling his 91 a couple months back I just noticed your trailer is a tandem axle his was a single axle trailer

I removed my pink and purple decals but as you can see in the pictures I was lucky enough to have the pink pinstripe on the outside and the pink piping on the seats <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> I do love it though <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/576712.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/576713.jpg" alt="Upload">
