And yes those Medallion gauges are driven by a MMDC so it certainly wouldn't be plug and play for your boat.

so, somehow, get the right controller, and then it will work?

I don't think that will work since the MMDC plugs into the ECU - iirc.

Right. Basically all the engine data is sent to the MMDC, then the MMDC controls the servos that move the needles in the gauges. I think it would be way more complicated than simply finding an MMDC, but I'm certain it could be done with lots of expense and expertise.

Ok I need some opinionated advise here. I know I'm in the right place.

This has to do with the windshield frame being powder coated.

And then in that last picture here is the complete text: (too long to screen shot)

Not thrashing u.. im here in the afternoons and at another job as well. Thats why I said its my personal and if you call me during my other job I will not be able to answer. Now that u can receive text messages. Because I have sent some in the past. I was unaware that my counter guy did not respond to u.. everytime u had called me I immediately text my counter guy to call you right back with am update. Me not charging you is not a hand out. Im simply not charging u from the mistake of how the job was done and how long it is taking... I have more then one business. And work a full time. Yes im very busy. I depend on my employees. As I fired my head coater. This is why im doing it my self... again sorry if no one called u back or answer you're calls. And again no one is ignoring you. Especially if razor calls me and texts me for you and I responded right away.. no harm done or am I
raising my text voice in anyway.. today I can say no one was here till 4pm... am trying my best to get it done by monday for you. I will text u or call u.. my best number to be reached is my business cell.. 773-595-xxxx


Ok. What the he'll do I do now?

He scolds me for contacting his cell. But I have literally been leaving him messages for the last week at his shop. No one answers at the shop ever.

Ok let me add. He states he fired his ex coater ... Well I was told his last coating tech was old and died. And when I drove all the way out there to pick them up because they were "done" and weren't the kid that was there (not Ted) told me Ted sprayed these himself. So he fired himself ... No he is a liar.

I think at this point you will never be happy. That's not a bash on you I just feel you will always have a bad taste for this business. I would go pick them up on Monday and take them somewhere else to get sprayed.

Go get your stuff, in whatever condition it's presently in, and take it elsewhere.

Sometimes it's really best to just move on, regardless of the cost.

Well, it was a total pain in the *** to get my stuff back. I finally picked it up yesterday and dropped it off. It will need to be redone but at this point I need my boat and will redo it next season.

It doesn't look terrible but you better believe I didn't pay a dime.

I also ordered and had installed new alternator, rebuilt water pump seals and bearings and rudder seals.

I'll post up specs for windshield part numbers and the bearings for the water pump. Skidim didn't carry them and had to go to a bearing company and spend hours searching, but we found them.
