I am looking for a 91 Prostar instrument panel. If they don't make them anymore a used would be great. I doubt I will find a used and therfore would settle for the MC pattern of the dash so one can be re-created.

I need to replace mine, and I have a good source for laser etching plastic material..........

but, man o' man!!!
it's gonna open up a real cluster pulling all those old wires from the gauges and replacing them in order to get everything switched out:eek3:

you seen behind them yet?

My buddy took his out and the co that was going to reproduce it lost it and thus this question.
He has no choice but to do something else.

Hi Guys,

I have a 94 Maristar where the panel is cracked in quite a few places where the screws tighten. I tried to take the screws out, but it seems most of them the nuts just spin (looks like they are suppose to be fastened to the dash). I looked from underneath and you can not see them. Does anyone have a trick to get them out? And if so, How do you repair them?

spring clip nuts..... got mine from Lowe's hardware/lumber store

the three pictured are actually from Polaris, for my four wheeler's fenders..... (larger screw hole)

Here is what I've done on my dash. Just a thought.

looks good!

was all that wiring as difficult as it looks?

btw, if you come up with a source for our switches, please pass it along.... I need one

The wiring was not that bad. I tried to mark most of the wires with masking tape. Most of the wiring mess is just a negative wire going from gauge-to-gauge-to-gauge.... (at least on my '91). Some of the wires were kind of prebent from sitting in one spot so long.
