Hi very interesting this warning light petrol gauge, Won't it restrict the needle amplitude?

 

 

hi

no it does not affect the needle deflection in anyway, the bimetalic strip that controls the needle merely comes to rest on an electrical contact when approaching empty, the gauge will still move below the light switch point too as the contact arm flexes and allows the very last movement to zero, i tested it on the bench using a petrol tank sender unit

Hey guys, do i now paint over the blue with black gravitex? or do i leave the blue? swampy had black over the blue? or do you think that swampy had blue on primer, then they put the underseal over the blue?

 

reason i ask is when i scraped the underneath of swampy, i scraped off black underseal and under that was saphire blue paint.

 

i dont mind leaving it blue

 

i can go either way on this?

 

or do i just paint the tubs in black?

or is it better with the tubs in blue?

 

what you lot think

i have the chance now to do any changes

 

i dont mind any feedback
