That looks good.
Do you know what the hole was used for below the indicator switch?
Thats for the after market Thermometer type fuel gauge that you could order as an extra.
Reason why I asked for was to see if it was in fact for the fuel gauge.
Then the next question would have been if Rudi knows if the car was originally bought from the old Lindsay Saker Mooi street in JHB.
Reason I wondered was that the majority splits that I came across that had a fuel gauge in was originally bought from the Mooi street agent.
I might be wrong but to me it seems like that specific dealer was promoting fuel gauges when selling cars.
Up to you if you want to keep it or close it. If you know you going to get a working gauge leave it. There will be many other holes you will
also need to close. I rather close it if it doesn't look like it's from the factory. Easier to make a new hole than to close one after paint. Just take a lot of pics for future reference.
