sundeck hinges for 1996 maristar 200 vrs

I broke a hinge on the sundeck and cannnot find replacement parts. I'm told they have to fabricate one. Does anyone know of a source I can look at for this problem? thanks

I had the same thing happen a few years ago, I gave them to a friend who owns a fabrication shop and he made me a new stronger one piece hinge.

I have a broken hinge as well on my 97 maristar 200vrs. Does anyone know another source besides the fabrication shop?

Your best bet is to take the ones you have now to a fabrication shop and let them make a new thicker one piece design. I went through this 2 years ago, called many dealerships looking for New Old Stock with no luck. Mine are now made of stainless still and I doubt they'll break again.

@WhalenJF has a 225 VRS and also had a 1 piece fabricated. Here is his.

I wish my brother still worked for that shop, I had so many random things made haha. I keep asking him to send me the CAD file but he never seems to remember.

I would definitely make them out of something stronger than the original aluminum, like stainless steel. I love the 1 piece because it seems to really make the sundeck much more solid.
