    New to me 2005 270 SunDeck needs a few parts replaced otherwise it'll drive me insane. Not looking to go mega custom or break the bank but rather as close to OEM or OEM look as possible.

    1. The dash is cracked in several places and needs to be replaced IMO.
    2. Gauges work just fine but the plastic covering is scratched pretty badly.
    3. Steering wheel replacement
    4. Has Garmin GPS but boat did not come with the GPS unit. Can I find a replacement that will fit the antenna, bracket and plug/power supply?

    Oh, looks like the fuel module needs to be replaced. Its leaking fuel from the gasket area. Will try to replace the O ring and gasket and see what happens. If not can someone point me in the direction of a reasonably priced replacement.

    TIA.

    Looks like Faria brand Euro Style font gauges? can't see well on my phone.. looking to replace speed, tach and multifunction? if all three, look for a set, and you don't have to worry about matching. Need to look to see behind the gauge what type of connection they use, wire with rings around a stud or plugs.

    I called local Sea Ray when I bought my new to me boat because the tach needle was off the post when I bought it. $230+ tax for a replacement teleflex gauge with the Sea Ray Logo. As opposed to a Faria O/B 7k tach with stud connections is under $100 at quite a few vendors.

    Marine Max is the only one so far that has the gauges. A little over $1000 for all 3 with the speedo being $550. OUCH.

    I need everything to match or it will drive me insane. Doesn't need to be all Sea Ray labeled gauges I suppose, especially for over $1000.

    Two piece dash replacement is about $550.

    Two piece replacement dash ordered today. All engine repairs completed, outdrive painted, zincs changed and hull painted. Now comes the cosmetic stuff to make it look as good as new. Dash, gauges and steering wheel up next.

    Thinking of an EchoMap all in one GPS unit. Does anyone use their iPhone/droid for navigation? I hardly call it navigation where we are, small river, C&D Canal and Bohemia River. But it is useful at night...

    The two cushions with the holes will be removed and taken to a local repair place. Hopefully that goes well. Might add a battery charger while I'm at all this.
