    Couv,

    Thanks for your best wishes, I have a feeling I will have a hard time finding one due to the shape and how it is held in.

    Thanks,
    Ruger

    Well ditch the Penform, get a different console and transfer your gauges into it.

    Hey Mate,

    Have you found a setup that will work? I was looking for something else and came across an item in my spare parts bin that may be just what you're looking for. It will hold the compass I posted pictures of earlier. It has ears on the bottom larger than the circumference of the compass.

    You could try cleaning up the old compass with high grit sandpaper. Maybe start with 1000 grit, then hit it with 3000, then buff it (preferably with some type of buffing wheel).

    Couv,

    Sorry for the delay in responding, yes I did find a replacement. Thanks again for your offer.

    Kelemvor,
    Thanks for the idea, now that I have a replacement I will try to clean up my original compass. If it works, it won't hurt to have a backup.

    Thanks
    Ruger

    We want pictures of the new compass installation and the old cleaned up one. :)
