View Full Version : Parts search for Stars & Stripes edition

10-20-2006, 09:25 PM
This is my first time posting and I am excited to find out about this forum for MasterCraft owners. I was referred to this site by a MasterCraft dealership in New Hampshire when I asked about finding new and used vintage parts for my 82 Stars & Stripes.
I bought this boat a little over a year and a half ago, but unfortunately the previous owner did not take care of the boat cosmetically or mechanically. In the time that I have owned the boat I have brought the motor back from the dead and have been able to use the boat for skiing and other water sports. I have now turned my attention to the cosmetics and I am trying my best to restore the boat to original. Unfortunately it is not always easy to find parts for a 1982 Stars & Stripes! So I am looking for anyone that might have parts kicking around for this boat, particularly a steering wheel and dash board parts. So if anyone knows where I can get parts or has parts I would appreciate it!

I also have a 82.
From what I can tell you should be able to get a steering wheel out of most any marine catalog.

What dash parts are you looking for?
I have replaced most of my gauges. There are lots of good ones out there.

There is a tutorial for posting images here (http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=103130&postcount=1).

Basically, you have to resize them to roughly 480x650 or use a hosting program like photobucket.

Hello folks I just discovered this and I'm super excited about it. I own a 1978 Carolina blue and white stars and stripes that I am going through and updating a little.it has a new crate 302 and I'm in the process of starting the interior. I'm looking to find the fiberglass seat base for the spotters seat. Mine is pretty rough shape.
