    I have 26' Tolley in dire need of an interior face-lift. I would welcome any comments from owner who have undertaken such endeavours.

    Been there.
    Had some fun doing it.
    Spent too much.

    Seriously though post a few pics of your interior and tell us what you're thinking about. There's some creative thinkers on this forum that might have some ideas.

    Ok I posted a few pictures. They are in my album: Tolleycraft

    so far.....I have removed the Detroit V-8 engine and I am repairing the transmission, replacing all the bearings in final drive and installing a transmission kit. The bearings failed because of water ingress...so I have to determine the source of the water, however I suspect a heat exchanger to be the fault.
    I intend to give the entire cooling system a good going over and then hopefully the engine will run well. I have it mounted on a skid right now so I can run it and tweak everything before I re-install it. while I have the engine out I intend to detail the engine compartment and re-fit what little storage space there is down there.

    The interior has a diesel stove and the whole cabin stinks of fuel. I intend to switch to a propane cooking range, however the floor is my biggest worry.

    If you look in one of the pictures you can see a portion of the grey painted floor..I think the plywood floor is saturated with diesel. in addition all the teak-work is faded and needs to be refinished. I hope to be able to salvage all the interior, except perhaps the floor.

    I believe the sewage tank may need replacing as well. Do I have to remove the shower floor to access the sewage tank. What needs to be done to the system to bring it up to modern code?

    I don't see any pictures in your album Brent.

    The only concern for a modern black water system is that it doesn't automatically pump overboard. You need a holding tank as well as a pump out line. You can also have an overboard discharge but you must be able to lock it off to avoid "accidental discharge".
