Having taken my dash apart, I wanted to reposition my dials, but the wires to my Ammeter dont quite reach to the position I want it (thats probably why the PO sited it where it Is). I need to get a longer pice of wiring, but know it is important to fit an adequate gauge wire. What should it be?
Thanks in advance.
