Electric switch panel question.

Hey all , any thoughts on repairing the housing unit. The plastic has completely failed and held together by tape. Click image for larger version

That plastic becomes extremely brittle. Been my experience that for 70s units not much is still working anyway. I don't think the tank level gauges are unreliable, if they work at all. The battery level gauge is inaccurate. Clock usually doesn't forget about the barometer although it is a nice decoration. The water pump switch is the keeper. Consider making your own panel with essential aftermarket switches and gauges. A electrical schematic would come in real handy. There is one in the service manual.

Battery gauge must be kinda useless in the scheme of things, there's no grey tank, my black tank is now a grey tank but easy to know when full as will back up into the tub, the fresh water holding tank gauge works but not accurate, clock, barometer and eight track, just nice time pieces from the 70's , I'd like to keep the original look but can't imagine that holding unit can be replicated, it was made of of very thin grade plastic that's gone brittle.
