    MFD for a 1995 SL780

    I recently picked up another project ski and need a MFD. Im on a very tight budget with this build so in order for me to buy it must be very affordable. Im trying to get this project done before Memorial Day.

    Thank you
    Jared

    The least expensive way is to find and buy a 'working' MFD with faded digits, then repair it yourself.

    The key is that the only problem with the MFD must be the faded digits; no signs of water visible inside the display, no physical damage, just hard to read LCD segments.

    Craigslist, other local sources.

    Heck, buy a whole dead ski, steal the MFD, then resell the ski for the same price

    (That's how lots of members here end up with a yard full of old watercraft...)

    I really appreciate you bringing this up. I had totally forgot that these could be repaired.
