Default just picked up a 97 1900sr

currently have a 97 wellcraft eclipse 2000s that has a completely destroyed interior, wife was supposed to re-do the interior if i rebuilt the motor, she didnt do a thing to it. so ive been searching for a suitable boat to swap the motor from the wellcraft into so i can scrap that hull. came across a 97 1900sr with a almost mint interior that supposedly has a bad motor. picked it up tonight for what i feel was a decent price.

couple things i could use a lead on if anyone has any -
the steering wheel is delaminated and split in half
tonneau and bow covers are pretty worn
gauge cluster is starting to get brittle

Welcome aboard Turbocorrado!!!

You're probably looking at an aftermarket replacement wheel.

Tonneau cover will be handled by a local marine canvas guy. There are no stock canvas items, this is an industry standard to have custom canvas work.

Gauges are Faria. They have a limited lifetime warranty, however that is for functionality, not cosmetic appearance. The panel they are mounted on will be a tough find. Probably easier to fabricate a aluminum replacement and have a wrap with a pattern of our choice to cover it.

was very close to it. she even recruited her mom to help, her mom is less productive than her. 2 years ago i gave her the sunpad to do. after spending an entire 6 hours working on the rear sunpad, all they had done is bought a piece of plywood, and made measurements that were wrong, didnt even make any cuts in 6 hours, damn thing didnt even need new wood.......when i tried to take over the upholstery i was told i dont know what i was doing and she wouldnt bring the sunpad back to our house. no progress was made after that. 2 years of boating with a missing sunpad

Can you post a picture of what you have as it may help identify what's missing.
