bummer man... we couldn't wait either. We went to Lowes and got some tee nuts without prongs or brad holes. Drilled out the hole to fit the diameter of the the tee nuts, slid the end in and placed nylon washer in the back for support. Used the factory bolts and boom looks brand new and is very sturdy. Cost a total of 15 bucks. Very happy with how it turned out

Ok so my father can't get them made at work and my neighbor is unable to as well. Just spoke with a machine shop, should be getting a quote back from them soon.

Well down South ....

I laugh at myself but this worked out really well - I shaved down the cracked portion of the original panel and created a new back plate with .. the screw top from two liter coke bottles. They required a touch of trimming to fit well. I used Gorilla Glue to laminate them to the back shell.

The only trick is to control the glue so you do not end up with a mess on the visual side. These caps are the perfect toughness for the application and the finished product is factory in its appearance.

For those that said that they were interested in buying a set of these, I am working on getting some of these made up. I have a rough prototype made for measurement purposes and have sent off for a cost, but I have not heard anything back yet. If you are interested in a set, let me know how many, etc. and I will see if I can get a better price ordering them all at once. Also, let me know if you are interested in bare aluminum, clear coated or anodized black. I am looking at all of these options as well.

Interested in a set or two. Any finish works for me, black anodized seems to be the norm for most dash and panel screws on boats that I work with.

count me in for a set. i'm not too particular about the finish, although aluminum would probably match better in my boat.

ncsone,
That's great news! I'm in for a set of three. My panel is black so black would work for me. Aluminum or clear coated would work too and would probably match up nicely with SS screws.
I'd guess the silver color would go better with white or tan panels better than black. Just my opinion.

Hope it works out. Thanks.

Ok. I submitted it to the machine shop today for estimating. I will probably hear back early next week. I am afraid the CAD drawing fee may be the biggest expense of it all, but will see. Stay tuned.
