Prostar 190 (1987-1990)

I am getting ready to make a new dash panel (instrument panel) for my 1989 Prostar 190. It will be made out of sheet metal of a reasonable gauge. I like the original covering, but I'm still debating. Would anyone be interested in seeing the finished product? I'm not trying to make money. Just trying to fix a problem.

Always love seeing someone's ingenuity and craftsmanship. Pictures would be great.

YES...please show. Also, if nice, there is nothing wrong with making more for you to sell to the rest of us PS190 owners that are in need.

Shoot yeah, post up some pics. I may be wrong, but if you can make a nice dash for a decent price, I'd bet you can sell 10 right out of the gate. Most people have to do like yourself and make there own of they want something different.

Okay. I'm going to make a prototype and post it here in this thread. It may take a few weeks for me to get it all together, but I'm going to design it soon. It may be slightly different in some of the contours. Shouldn't be too hard. Sheet metal boys will have to laser cut and bend.

Here is the unfinished mold. I still need to apply another coat of filler and sand it smooth, but this is the mold that I will make the dash that goes on the boat from.

Nice, I recently acquired a 88 190 and am trying to find ideas to fix missing, broken or just plain wore out parts
