Are there replacement kits available? Or do they need to be custom rebuilt guage by gauge and with a keylock?
Any assistance would be of great help.
I found a parts list of the original panel, but not sure where I should go from there.
See the following link for a parts list
on my boat i made a replacement guage panel out of teak and installed a set of faria guages as replacements.faria has a full line of a4 replacement guages.
i removed the main fibreglass housing, sanded and filled it and had it repainted at a bodyshop my workplace deals with.
make sure you take a good clear picture of the back of the panel before you start removing your wiring.
one wire at a time, i replaced all the wiring which was a nice afternoon job.
if you do this, make sure you use the proper wiring or dont bother.
