    Though I'd share the Monte Carlo Bar I made. I thought the 'off the shelf' ones looked a little flimsy. I had some spare 1" pipe and some brackets of my old boat (cavitation plate adjustment). Worked out pretty well. I can screw the end fitting out to take the load off the Export Brace. Makes fitting that pretty easy now.

    Gas Tank Pressure

    I replaced the cork with the foam from a plug in type gas cap that you get at gas stations. It sealed the tank, so I got fuel starvation. so I made a notch in it to let it vent. Didn't take much, and haven't had any spills since.

    There is a cure for your gauge issues... Contact MidLife for pricing :)

    Possible...look for a thin purplish wire tied into the black/green thick wire at the ignition switch connector or at a large OEM splice above the switch connector. Check to see what resistance you have been the ignition switch pin and the dash cluster pin: should be 10 ohms or so. You can also check for voltage at the dash cluster pin: 12V, but the presence of voltage does not necessarily mean you'll have current due to high resistance.

    Nice work Mal.

    I am using a similar front disc brake kit that uses 65/66 K/H style calipers with the transfer tube. I am using 68 GT styled steel wheels that came off of a 68 GT that I had back in the 80's that had factory disc brakes & the wheels clear the calipers. Here is a link to the style wheel I am using. https://www.cjponyparts.com/wheel-vintiques-styled-steel-wheel-14-x6-original-style-1968-1969/p/W100-V/

    That is the kit that uses 65-66 4 piston calipers and rotors on 69 spindle, right? I just installed a kit like that on my 69 and one point on my 14" factory steel wheels scraped the caliper. Nothing hit the hard line on the caliper. I shaved the area on the rim that scraped. Can you bend the line a little and eliminate the rubbing? If you were looking for an excuse for new wheels, never mind my suggestion.

    Gas Tank Pressure

    Your cap looks like a reproduction pop open gas cap. If so, why not just get the twist on cap and remove the sealing piece and the spring from your locking cap? Twist on looks like a generic cap that you find on older cars.

    Only grounding to the case, and the power output from the CVR is shared by all 3 gauges. Your input power to the CVR or its ground may also be suspect; that is all there is. I've found that the resistor wire feeding the dash cluster pin needs to be re-crimped, as often times it reads well above the nominal 10 ohms from the ACC source at the ignition switch.

    A few weeks back I took my Mustang and Challenger along to my Son's school, as there was a car show being held there. Here's a photo of the cars:
