Suzuki Plastic cover

Hi all.

Iím searching for the equivalent of Hens teeth again.

Iím in the middle of putting a 1999 Suzuki 200HP EFI on the back of my Ocean.

However the engine came with a surface mounted control unit that I want to use as it has a better action than my current cheapo quicksilver surface mounted one.
Unfortunately the unit is missing its Plastic cover, which doesnít affect the way it works, it just looks unfinished.
Iíve made a cover up from sheet steel bent to shape and spot welded that looks better than it should but the proper one would obviously look better.

The cover is not available separately, and Iíve tried all the usual places with no luck.

Anyone have one hanging around in the shed? Donít mind buying a whole unit or even one where the plastic needs some work to bring up to scratch.

Failing all else, does anyone have one I can take a mould off?


Cheers


Nasher.

No idea if they have but a wander round the the chadlery barge in burseldon is often worth the time.
just under the bridge past Aladin's cave up the road on the right hand side in the boat yard.
Worst case the stainless steel nust and bolts are sold by weight
good luck

Naher,
You could always ask Codders as he says he has a Suzuki

Tonight I wrapped the unit up in 3 layers of cling film and plastered on loads of filler.
Over the weekend I'll shape it to how I want the final cover to be and take a mould off it.

Then all I need to do is smash off the filler and use the mould to make a cover.
Thats the plan anyway.

Nasher.
