342 instrument panel refurb

CrewLoungeCrewLounge Norris Lake, TNPosts: 92Member ✭✭
I have an 02 342 and my engine gauges are needing replaced.  It appears they are obsolete now as well as an odd size, so I need to have a new dash panel built.  I think I will go with smart craft gauges to return the dash to as near original condition that I can.  My question is, does anyone have any ideas who to use or have done this already?

    My mechanic made a new dash for me that holds a vessel view 4, the multi gauges (just for the gas readings) and my chartplotter.  I would look around for someone who does car modifications for the dash.

    Try those guys, great looking modern looking cool options. My personal opinion is the fake plastic wood look is cheap looking.

    I would make it myself out of starboard for $50 and then vinyl wrap it with a similar wood grain to the original. A decent router will give you the rounded edges and sunk in gauges.
