Steel binnacle mount from Raptor Engineering

My gauge cluster had cracked mounting tabs and the face had a few cracks as well. When removing it I noticed that the part that it was mounted to was pretty dry and cracked also.

I ended up finding a brand new plastic cluster and a steel "binnacle mount".

Installed everything and was very pleased with the steel mount. It is top notch and fits just like the original. All the screw holes line up. It is much stronger.

Too bad no one make steel clusters as well.

If you are in the market for a new binnacle mount go with Raptor Engineering!

X2 on Stephenss ally version. I got one of the first units and it has been awesome from day one. While the steel version from Raptor may also fit well, I don't want anything else that can rust.

Bought it direct from the UK. It took under a week to arrive. It is powder coated black.

It pretty much matches the stock interior dash....just without the simulated leather look.

We have those in Alumium and have sold over 150 units with no complaints. Ours are made to order here in Orlando for Safari Heritage Parts.
