i haven't been able to open up the madelectric site for a while
obviously you guys can. i tried with chrome and iexplorer

but i did read his site a couple of yrs ago and decided to convert my amp gauge into a volt gauge
i did a small write up on it in the 55-59 chevy truck thread post #2361 (last page as of today)
take a look at it it might be something you can work into the vette dash

but... i think your amp gauge is currently being bypassed by the red wire that is hooked from the horn relay to the solenoid
maybe the previous owner had problems with the amp meter

the only way to protect you amp meter in it's current place is with a fusible link at your battery.
