I was under the impression that the CUCV uses the same interior lights and gage cluster as a similar year Civilian Chevy Truck. Wouldn't it be much simpler to check junkyards for some of those parts?

I've got a couple places in my circuit path that have shorted out, I've repaired them with the same kit that you use to fix those electric defrosters on windows, but it's happened again in a different place. Do you know where to get that replacement circuit pad? I've considered going to the junkyards, where I got a replacement dash pad and stuff, but the electronics on the junkers with be 20+ years old also.

If you are willing to be a guinei pig and want to spend $80, the circuit board from LMC may be a replacement. Looking at the pictures in the catalog it appears it is the same. I just have never needed/wanted to spend the cash.

Hawkman or HillbillyWizard may have some used ones.

I have the catalog in front of me, are you talking about the 38-8036? For models without guages?

Yes,I added the part number to my earlier post. The one DH posted is $10 cheaper. Looks like the aftermarket guys are helping us out finally.
