Default Maxum gauge switch panel

I have a 1999 Sport cruiser 2800 with a very nice gauge/switch panel that looks like wood.
The issue is the lettering identifying each switch has rubbed off. I can't tell which switch is which.
Maxum doesn't have the panel part anymore. Anyone know where I can get one??
Also, I could put labels on if I could make the names of the switches. The diagram of the panel on the Maxum web site is so small I can't make out switch descriptions.

first off ..welcome to the zoo.....
second...I do know someone that makes panels complete with labelling ..but you need to know what each switch does....the only other thing is to try each switch..see what it operates and note it ..then make labels for it...there should be 2 accy switches that are there to add a new item....

I bought a 2001 2900 last year and had the exact same problem. I found the switch diagram in the owner’s manual and then I bought some of those black stick on labels from West Marine. I could not exactly match the wording but they were close enough. Example would be forward bilge and now it’s just bilge. Not a big deal. Looks ok too.

if you call your local specialty screen printer they can screen print the words on the panels using epoxy or enamel inks and they will look like the originals and only cost you about $35-$60 for a couple panels and the set up!

you can replace your switches with either switches with icons on them, + lighted for night use identifying their function or names printed on the switches.
