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??

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 :-) I do love it though
