After 6 years in the Florida sun my dash is starting to bubble.
Has anybody replaced their's. Chap wants almost 300 for a replacement.
Is the woodgrain a coating or a skin stretched over and cut out?

You might try going to M&G Electronics in VA Beach. They make the originals. But most likely you'll have to get them thru CHap.

Mine are the plastic ones and they have just faded, not bubbled.

I had a 1990 signature 30 I had custom dash panels made. I never even thought of calling Chaparral for replacements however I hated the look of the old ones anyway. You don't want to know what I spent but I'll say this $300 is a bargain. I replaced them at about the 12 year mark it came out great I thinking about doing my current boat it makes a big difference.

just found a picture I replaced everything gauges wheel shifters and wiring harness plus added Navman fuel monitor.

Yu can also contact pacer marine in Ft Lauderdale or Sarasota and have them make up new panels for you.

I had mine made in Florida I don't remember the name of the company could be pacer but as I said it was pricey, I think it was about $1500 for four peaces. The price include sink screen all the lettering and I got to choose the finish As you see above I went with Burl wood. I spent all winter looking the the right wheel. It was a fun project however now the helm is worth more then the boat.

I called a company Vectorled extremely reasonable.
Their are pics on his website.
The original is a skin stretched over an aluminum? plate.
In the Florida heat and sun it will just bubble again.
