    Default Shrink Wrap Tape Residue

    Minnesota resident here that just purchased a '98 Supra Sunsport and towed it home from Georgia. Given the trip was 1,100+ miles I had the boat shrink wrapped to keep it protected from road grime. Pulled it into the heated garage when I got home, and removed the wrap. The wrap did an excellent job keeping it clean, but all along the bottom edge I have residue from the shrink wrap tape. Goo-Gone seems to take it off with some serious elbow grease and time, but figured I would check here if anyone has a better method of removing it? I imagine quite a few people here shrink wrap their boats for the winter.

    Congrats on the purchase! Saw that one on Craigslist.
    Glad you could take Georgia bulldawg colors back home to Minnesota with ya. 😂
    That black/ white combo with red striping is very classy.
    Post up some good pics when you have a chance.

    As far as sticky, goo gone is your best bet unless a combination of vinegar/ warm water doesnít do the trick. Definitely need to re-wax once removed.

    Once again, congrats and welcome to forum.

    Good idea on the vinegar, I'll give it a try this weekend.

    I'm a big fan of the black and red myself. I wish they still had the retro Supra font, but overall I think it is still a very clean look. I will be starting a build thread soon, and I'll post up some pictures in there.
