Shasta rebuild

Keep up the good work. We had to restore/rebuild our 1990 HiLo Classic. I know it can be done and enjoyed for many years to come.

More good luck for me. I needed a table floor mount and was just about ready to order one. but a co worker was hauling a load of "scrap metal" today and there on the top of the truck load was a table mount and the floor mount. I guess I'm buying him coffee. Needless to say my table is now installed

I love a good project. Sounds like you were crotch deep in this one. It looks fantastic. What was the biggest hassle you ran into while rebuilding this bad boy? I keep coming back and looking at the pics. Great stuff!

The biggest hassle on the project has been the funding. Extra money these days is a bit hard to come by. Other then that the lack of carpentry skills and never having tried doing this before, at least I have 20 years or so as a diesel mechanic.

Our '87 had a 4 inch memory foam. I bought another and laid it on top of the old one. Super comfortable, but the first time I smacked my head into the edge of the bathroom door, because it wouldn't open all the way, is when the razor knife came out and I hacked it off. The cover that came with it just tucked underneath.
