Unhappy 1994 Prostar 205 Glove box

Well we got out for the first time this year. Water was crap and cold to boot. Other than that we got to enjoy just being away from it all and being under the sun and over the water.

While we were out when I was going into the glove box the acrylic(?) black lid cracked on the drivers side hinge. I think it is pretty much pooched, where can I get another one. We will also need to change the hinges as they look really weathered and are very stiff now.

Please help me find one!!! I will post a pic if I have one, other wise I will have to take one next weekend.

I have the same boat with the same stiff hinges. I actually like the stiffness of the hinge motion, because it keeps the lid up while I am pillaging. I did try to replace the foam gasket with some Lowes stuff (none available through MC). I have not had enough water thrown that direction to test the new gasket yet.

Unfortunately the stiffness of our hinges caused the driverside hinge corner to completely crack, I am not sure this is condusive to a water tight unit . I would really appreciate if anyone knows how to order parts like this? We are heart broken as we strive to keep our Prostar in mint shape.

Your best chance to find one is hopefully a dealer has one laying around. I would seriously doubt it though. I would start checking fleabay. There are a few salvage marine dealers online. Maybe they would have one..

West Marine has replacement Glove Boxes for around $31.00 + shipping.
http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...key=SiteSearch

Check your dimensions against theirs, should work, not a used unit, new, better than nothing!

Overton's even has them, http://www.overtons.com/modperl/prod...earch&x=19&y=5

Thanks a bunch, but those aren't going to work. it is just the plastic cover that is broke and installing those guys would involve some seroius modifications.

Thread Revival..... I am looking for the exact same thing for the same reason. We've replaced a ton of parts on this boat, but this one is proving difficult to find. Now that 5 years has passed, does anybody know where I can find one?

Thanks
