I inquired on the condition of the plastic dash on a 990 on cl in columus ohio

this was the reply

 

 

Actually the dashes of carbon.  they use on car bodies. Is in great shape and here are pictures

 

So if this is the case why do they break like they do

 

Sure wish mine had a carbon dash it wouldn't be broke

A carbon fiber dash tower would be very good looking on the 990. 

 

I sent my nice dash to a fellow 990 owner so he can restore his machine. He is going to see what he can do to make a mold and create a new plastic or fiberglass unit. Hope it works out.

I have a good friend that makes carbon parts. Wonder what he would want to make some. Maybe a little more than anyone wants to spend.
