Sorting the fuel sender

Today I managed to get the rest of my gauges cleaned up and installed. I put a small LED warning light in the water temp gauge for high temperature. Then I got all the gauge wires sorted back in their proper place. I also modified my fuel cell to accept a stock, slightly modified, fuel sender. I had to install a guard to keep the foam from getting under the sender float. The foam is a large piece of fuel cell foam which lays in the bottom of the tank and keeps the slosh to a minimum during cornering. I bent the float arm on the sender to have it bottom out before it hits the bottom of the tank. I am pretty sure the gauge will read full for the first 5 gallons but I can live with that. Just want to know when it is getting empty!!
