1957 Hi-Liner Speed-Star

by Shane

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

by Shane

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!

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
