Well i took time to replace the busted dash on the HT23 today.Looks good now just not crazy about the decal color.The color is not close to the orginal but it is a decal.Never could figure why the used a plastic dash on these.

They went to a plastic dash during the HT23 and HT20D tractors.

Thanks Brian. The plastic was a bad ideal that should of never happened. If it is cold outside they break if looked at wrong.

The new dash looks great. A shame the green is brighter. I an't believe they changed them to plastic either.

The decal came from maplehunters. I plan to call them and discuss it.I have the old decal and could send it to them so they could get the color correct.

With you helping them with the color, they should be MORE than happy to send you a corrected color decal free of charge.

I have noticed that some of Maplehunters decals are not to original specs.....

That dash looks great Bob! I know that the color is off a little, but I've seen factory stuff where the color is that far off, albeit never on a higher end piece like the HT23. I think as Dan said above, that they will probably comp you a correct one for helping out! Nice job!
