Instrument panel plastic gl1500 98

Post by Jabberwokki »



Hello!
I’ve been down the rabbit hole several times and failed to find an answer so I am posting in hope some more experienced repair persons can help.
Had a small screwdriver mishap that caused a slightly deeper than normal scratch on my instrument panel plastic cover. (Ouch!)
Cannot seem to find if there ever was or is a replacement available?
I would like to repair or replace but so far no solid information and most I have read refers to internal workings.
Thanks in advance if anyone can throw me an idea.

You all never fail me :-)
I had poured over that schematic before but the meter part blew right past me.
I plan on doing some instrument lighting replacement coming up and it’s a relief to know my mess up wasn’t permanent.
Thanks for the swift and accurate reply Mike!
