View Full Version : 1989 Prostar 190 Side Panel

07-17-2007, 11:48 PM
I just bought a used 1989 prostar 190 and it doesn't have side panels and the previous owner doesn't have them either. I was thinking about just trying to make some frames and getting them upholstered. Does anyone have any ideas or pictures so i can get a handle on what im dealing with here. Thanks for the help.

I hope these pics help of our '89 PS 190. Both sides are identical, but opposite hand.

Unfortunately that thread is for early '80's, not for "87 to '90 interiors. They are totally different, but the materials and construction techniques should be the same.

Mr. Corrector, I mean TMCno1, I was just showing the methods he could use. I realize that the boats are different.

Thanks for the pictures and link. Thats a great looking boat and a hellofa garage. How exactly are the side panels attached. I noticed the bumps between the side and the deck of the boat but i couldn't figure out if that had to do with the side panels or not. Just trying to wrap my head around this and see if my novice abilities can handle it. Boat really seems like its missing something with out these.

There is a single screw which goes through the bottom middle of the side panel down into the bumpout you see where the sidewall meets the deck. The other connectors are permanently inserted in through the covered side of the panel so all you see sticking out on the unfinished side are either the bolts which have nuts that go on the back side of the upper decking, or plastic snap pins (not sure what they are called). I have sent mine off to be re-upholstered and hopefully they will put everything back exactly like it was originally and I can send you some pics. I have a 88 PS190.
