How do I get into the dash of 1988 Sea Ray Express Cruiser 390

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Marine Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so the Marine Mechanic can help you best.

I need to correct some wiring and change some instruments

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

Just need to know how to access the upper dash

To gain access to the back of the gauges, you would need to remove the handful of small screws that are around the edge of the gauge panel. Then you can pull it out to replace the gauges that you wanted to.
