Ive seen numerous threads for other models, but figured it may be worth a shot. It looks like the key, horn and rocker panels are the same off of some other models, however the main gauge closer panel I havent seen much close. Anyone have any luck finding these?

I made mine with a rotozip and jigsaw. I found a local plastics shop and they gave me free scrap. I have a 94 225vrs.

I would like to replace my dash panels as well. Have a 95 200 VRS. Dboat, do you have pics? I don't have any experience with working with plastic, but I would like to try to make my own.

I ordered some dash panels from here. So far they have sent me the wrong set after waiting 2 months and now I have to send back. Hopefully they will send me the correct set. What they sent me looked good, but wrong boat.

Did any of you have any problems removing the panels? On my 94 Maristar, I've got two problems removing the panels (other than ignition panel):
- After removing screws, the panels don't lift, its like they are glued on. Is it just 20 years of crud/cleaner, adhesive seal, or ??
- My gauge cluster panel has two screws that spin w/o unscrewing, seems the screw is corroded into the nut insert, and the insert is spinning in the fiberglass (and of course it seems that you can't get to the backside of panel from underneath ...

Just curious if you hit either of these problems playing with your panels - thanks!

I know it's a different boat, but on my Prostar, I had the same issue. Wound up having to partially unscrew the dash from the main structure of the boat to reach a hand around behind to stop the insert from spinning.
