My 1984 Funlight for $400
Six months ago I had never heard of a Hilo, however a friend of mine had one sitting in a field and offered it to me for $400...how could I refuse?
Well it had been sitting in the up position for 3 1/2 years and looked like it. Took me 3 days to figure out how to lower it without destroying it and haul it off.
Since then I have repaired extensive interior water damage on both front and rear caps, replaced the 4 vents on the roof, put a Gaco sealant on the roof, removed & resealed all 4 windows after rebuilding the frames due to water damage. Recently I just finished all the clearance and brake lights. I have also performed what I hope is all the maintenance items for the pullies & cables. The first thing I learned about however is the guide rod...make sure you make friends with this thing.
I am now attempting a rewiring of a lot of frayed up wiring. Next will be a rebuild of the black tank. My tank has many large holes. I would normally just buy a new one, however that is not possible since no one seems to have one.
Anyway if you need any help I would happy to let you in on what I know.
