  • Thank you Sir. I have studied the wiring in the photos and pretty much have it nailed down...just for following.

    I told a buddy of mine this week that I am taking mine out of service for a season for a few improvements. New main engine seals, new floor covering and...

    I like the entire wiring setup but am not 100% certain I am willing to put it in the pod. Certainly the most logical place but easy access is my concern, however, how often is a fellow in the dash, considering the auto reset fuses and the waterproof Deutsch connections. I think you identified the rocker switches earlier in the thread.

    Thanks again for sharing and providing details along the way. I am an information hoarder.

    • Rocker switches? Link? New wire marine dot com is lacking. I think that is all.

              • I am working on the dash instrument pod the nut plates most of them were spinning in the plastic of broken all the way out. this is a common problem with this dash. My solution is to fabricate a aluminum back bone with new nut plates to tighten every thing back up. Click image for larger version

                  A nice touch. I was thinking about how you were going to secure the corners on the front panel.

                  Looks great and the perfect opportunity for the upgrade considering your shop.

                  I am waiting to see what you may custom fabricate for the five screws on the top part.

                  • I have completed the dash cover rework. I V cut all the cracks in the plastic on the back side and bonded the new aluminum panel to the back side with JB weld. I had to install the sub panel and radio cover to hold everything in place wile the adhesive setup.The two damaged corner nutserts were repaired using the same process and installing two triangular aluminum back plates and two new nutserts were installed before the adhesive setup. This was a difficult repair because it was so broken up. I think we are good for the next 25 years.Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_1229.jpg Views:	2 Size:	156.4 KB ID:	2698734 Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_1230.jpg Views:	2 Size:	150.4 KB ID:	2698735

                      • I didn't see in your restoration/rebuild if you retreated your dash. My dash has heat damage at the top and the black covering is flaking off. Any suggestions on what i can coat this with to restore it?

                          You are likely to get better results by sticking with the thread you started instead of inter-exchange and multiple post requests of your issues.

                            • You need some small LED lights inside the pod for a nice illumination if / when you open the dash. That is too good to leave in the dark....:-)

                              Coming together very nicely.
