looks nice, if you figure out how to get the gauge out can you post a pic. I tried the little screws and stopped. I also read that you can pull the complete dash off by removing radio, steering wheel and one nut underneath and dash will pull off.

What motor do you have

The 2" is likely outside (trim) diameter. I kept the clarion head unit because I have wired front and rear remotes. Went to all JL (amp and speakers) and can't honestly think of a good reason to ditch the head unit until I have to. Ebay has the gauges from time to time - BUT - GAUGES CHANGED SOME INTERNAL COMPONENTS AROUND 2005. For that reason, gauges made after that - which will gnerally have the off white background, not the white, will not always work across all gauge functions. I would personally to be sure, check with several MC dealers about ordering those right. Rex and Rambo Marine is excellent for this and he told me about the gauges to prevent me from getting the wrong fuel gauge. Rex at Rambo isn't the cheapest out there, but his expertise is worth the difference in buying and shipping parts that are wrong for the boat - trust me! Nice looking boat.
Thanks for the offer of assistance and the plug for Rambo .. sometimes you get more when you pay more

I'm hoping to enjoy it a bit more. While a little cold here in VA, our lake is heated!!! Water temp is still in the mid 70's.

I have the MCX 350. It has had the manifolds/risers done, a new ECM and the alternator replaced. I'm hoping that means smooth sailing ...
