Default Radar arch access plate.

Hello all,
I have a 1998 3000 SCR and have two questions.

1. I am missing the access plate in the middle of the radar arch. Any idea where I might find one? I hate to try to make one but will if I have to.

2. On the port side is there an access hole through the underside and up into the radar arch? I am wanting to run an additional line on that side up into the arch.

Any info is appreciated.

welcome to the zoo....I believe the access panels are made of 1/4 thick starboard.....if you go to west marine..they have the starboard panels available..then it's just a matter of making a pattern from the arch and cutting it out of the starboard...

I replaced mine last season after it ejected itself on the way back from Hells Canyon. I replaced it with black acrylic as well as the trim rings around the arch lights. It really udated the look on our older Maxum. Something to consider. Easy to do and the materials can be purchased at Tap Plastics. I had mine done by a CNC shop I do work with. There is a good chance the patterns would match. Let me know and I can have them send you a pattern.

Thanks Lucky, Are you able to send me a picture of what yours looks like. I definately would change up the color if it dressed it up.

Yeah, I'll try and get a couple of pics for you. It did dress it up nice. I'll try and get them to you by the weekend.

Hunterman, here are a couple of pics of what we did. I replaced my original top a couple of seasons ago and we went with black sunbrella. The black accents have really made the boat look up to date. If it is similar to yours, you can have the pieces cut in any color you want. I have already had it programmed so it should save you some $$. Let me know if I can help.

Thanks Lucky,
Yes those look exactly like mine. I think the black really looks good and would suit me just fine. Fill me in on the details.

Hunterman, I'll call the shop in the morning and see if they still have the programming. If so, I'll put you in touch with them direct.
