Is it still possible to find those clear deck plates that cover the gas gauges on the outrages in the 80s

Any marine supply store like West or Boat Us has them. They are made by Beckson.

If the boat is a 1986 or later then the deck plates are by Beckson, but if the boat is earlier than 1986 then the deck plates were made by PYHI and are no longer available. Unfortunately, the Beckson and PYHIs are slightly different sizes and not interchangeable.

I tried for years to find a new clear plate for the pry-out over the fuel gauge in my 1983 Outrage 18 and never found one. The Becksons were not even close in size.

If you have an old clear deck plate that is scratched, it may be possible to improve it with careful bufffing. A fine buffing compound like 3M-FINESSE-IT-II and plenty of elbow grease may be able to restore the clear plate to clarity.
