Great kit, Tom. Mine came today. Thanks.

I read the above, and understand that a 12v and G (1 and 2) run the Volt meter.

Stealing the 12V from the temp gauge with the red #1 from what terminal on the temp gauge?
I'd guess the one at the 3 o'clock position as the picture faces us. But guessing is not smart. Hahahaha!

Also, where do you recommend attaching the other end of the ground wire (black; #2)?

Finally, what is the purpose of the short black wire with the #3 and #4 eyelets?
And, what connection points do you suggest?
