1957 Hi-Liner Speed-Star

I'm in the process of restoring a 13' Speed Star that's in good condition.

All the chrome needs refinished and someone painted the bottom 3/4 white so that needs removed.

The inside was also painted (very ugly).

It needs a lot of attention, it needs a steering wheel all the cables, upholstery, MOTOR and refinished.

I think I may have bit off more than I want to do.

I found some great sites to look at for ideas.

1957 HiLiner Speedstar Resoration

Is it possible to over think your restoration?

I need so much but on a tight budget.

Boat is mostly stripped on bottom, I did some fiberglass to repair damage.

I'm looking for a windshield, motor and controls then some upholstery.

I did complete the restoration to the trailer, well mostly I still have to redo the bunks and get a spare tire holder.

The HiLiner metal is in good shape but need some advise on how to get is nice and shinny.

I love the links to the HiLiner site.

Wish me luck!
