I am seriously considering it at this point. To be honest, when I started this whole ordeal, I didn't know someone was making 12v reproductions of my gas gauge. It sure would take away the heartache!

The last two days I've been cleaning up wiring under the hood, shortening excess lengths, soldering connections previously made hastily, and trying to make things look nice.

I've had my 50 Fleetline for 26 years and the gas gauge never worked. Last year when i started tinkering with it again, I replaced the sending unit at the tank and the gauge in the dash(both 12 volt). worked like a charm! I've never been so happy to have a gas gauge!!!

I'm glad to hear that. It's nice when things finally work properly. Everything seems to take more time than it should!

This week's update:

1. Still no progress on the "buzzing" gas gauge. I have a 12 volt repop gas gauge on back order and Speedway Motors is curious to know if this fixes the problem. I have a knack for being "the first" glitch products ever encounter.

2. I've now patched both front fenders by hand rather than spending $175 each for the sheet metal. They just need to be skimmed with filler and sanded.

3. I'm putting the front end together temporarily to hit a few car shows this month. I'm getting pretty good at assembling and disassembling the front and aligning the gaps! The hood hinges need to be rebuilt. They are pretty wobbly!

4. I'll post some pics this weekend. My biggest enemy right now is apathy. This whole "Covid School Year" is sucking the life out of me and I spend most evenings sitting and staring at the car with no motivation to work on it. Please pray for me...

I go through frustrating times with my car, sometimes thinking a job should take 2 weeks and it's 5 weeks and I'm still not done with it. When I get to that point, I shut the car down for a week or two, and work on non-car stuff. Kat always has a list of projects. It's better for the soul.
