My Binnacle is broken, you know on your dash.

Mine is cracked, anyone know were I can get a new one?
This is what holds all your gauges.

thanks

Check with Stephen Peters at Safari Rover (he's a frequent board member), George at RDS or the other usual suspects.

No prob. Is it the instrument binnacle or the cowl that is broken? If it is the cowl, ask Stephen about the aluminum version to replace the plastic cowl that is easily broken.

This might be a 'duh' question but what is the difference between the cowl and the binnacle?

The cowl is the piece that bolts to the dash directly and the binnacle is the piece that bolts to the cowl and holds all the gauges.

Is that sort of like "Bonnet and hood", or "Tyres and tires". lol

I think you might need some new hood sticks to help hold your fume curtain in place.

well, I'll be damned, first time I've ever seen cowls on e-bay.
But in all honesty, I think I'll wait for the aluminum replacements if I can ever remember who was doing them.

That would be Stephen Peters at Safari Rover. There's a thread in the vendor section.
