Good Morning, afternoon or evening to you all. I recently picked up a 1996 2050, It is missing the port blower vent cover, and apparently these are impossible to find. Can anyone point me in the right direction, before I start breaking out all of my fiberglass supplies? I called 4 dealers, and everyone they suggested to call to no avail.

If anyone has had a similar issue, what have you done, Have you made your own covers? Pictures if you have them..

I wish I had at minimum a broken one to fix, and make a mold of.

Yup, I've done EBay. I've even contacted sellers who were selling used 2050 parts, No good leads yet. I started with the fiberglass last night, Guess we will see how well I can reproduce one with nothing to make a mold of.

Well... I've put a few hours into it so far, its a pretty simple shape to make, just a pain with all the prep work...

Monday night was prep and foam...




Last night was cut - shape and apply the first couple layers of glass.




A couple more layers of glass tonight with some bondo hair as filler and she will be good to go... I've made dozens of fiberglass speaker boxes, so I hope this is the best way to do this.



Notice the Skeg... I'm in line to have a new one welded on..

Well... If I wasn't in a wedding I would have finished it tonight.. But it'll have to wait until Monday..

Mostly finished with the roughing..



Approaching final fitment. Still rough.


Skipped the last step in shaping, since I forgot to take a pic.. But its now smoothed out, fully formed, and has its last layer of glass. A quick sand to remove the excess glass, nice paint, and she is ready... Well, ready to make a mold of.

MAYBE you could make some extra & put them up for sale . The cover is a hard item to come by . Very lucky you had the skills to do the job right . for those who do not they could get them from you !!!!

+1 great suggestion. A ton of work for only 1 piece. All the hard stuff is done now, why not try and profit from your labor..?

+2! Just post it in classified and people will find it. These parts are usually made from "unobtainium" and if they are available (NOS) the material is "unaffordium"........
