Dash repair

Any suggestions on what product might be used to patch a hole in a x2 dash panel. Hole is about 3 - 4 inches.

Buy a new dash off eBay. There is no fixing that

you will need to build a fiber glass panel and put it under there.. then use marine filler and reg gel. very repairable.. getting the shape right will take some time.. lot's of products available...

West systems epoxy, fiberglass roving and matte, marine fairing filler, gel coat - prolly cost a couple of hundred in product. Evercoat even sells a waxed covering you can use to get a nice finish so you're not sanding.

Aric's right. It will be though to get this right and not look like a repair and once Great Lakes skipper runs out of remaining panels, you are hosed...700 bucks and you get new gauges to boot (yours look like they have an assortment of different ones that were used as replacements)

Only 2 left. For a 2008 so black instead of grey but I'd expect it would be difficult to find a used grey one (if not impossible)
