Dash rebuild

Im restauring my boat this winter and have now desided to rip out the old dash and build my own, I work at the distributor for Gaffrig Gauges and get some amasing prices. So I need room for 7 Gauges, two of them is quite big!
Have anyone done a dash rebuild? Pic`s? Im thinking of making it in Stainless steel any thaughts?
Altso working on installing hydraulic steering, coming out great!

I haven't, but I'd be curious to see how it comes out, mine is beginning to show its age.

I believe your 86 has the same Dash Pod arrangement that my 82 has.

I rebuilt mine, but went with oak instead of stainless. Stainless should be easy, but I suggest you make a template out of cardboard then transfer to the stainless.

I see you have an 88, not an 86. Your dash is different.

As a former Grand Wagoneer owner, I feel it pertinent to pass along that if anyone needs it for his dash, you can buy the 3M woodgrain decal for a few different types of wood at www.stripeman.com.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I used an engraving machine at work and engraved into a plastic plate.
Most local trophy shops have this type of machine and can do this for you. I plan on replacing my switch plate again and change the font somewhat.

I've thought about replacing the plastic panels on my 94 dash where the switches are, the lighter & the stereo. I thought carbon fiber would look pretty cool.
