Hi - I'm Liz, from Portland OR and I'm so glad to have found this resource!
I am taking a second look at a '75 Honey boler
I'm curious about assessing the condition of the fiberglass itself - is it possible to tell by visually inspecting if it's brittle? There aren't any critical cracks, some spider cracks, no dimple above the driver's side wheel as might indicate frame compromise -- but, a friend had a look and noted that the fiberglass appeared whitish and thought that might indicate that UV exposure had caused brittleness.
update because I learned a new thing
- so if this honey is original then it's gel coat and needs cleaned and polished...
It's a brownish color, which appears to be the original color of the Honey boler
Anyone have any other insights on assessing/purchasing to share here?
P.S. I have just now read Ian G.'s awesome guide to buying a boler
