DIY low fuel light circuit
I think the reason I'm thinking about this is that I take my clusters out so often and mess around with the faces. That tends to make the gauge alignment, um, 'non-factory' and I have to spend a couple of tanks figuring out where E really is after the fact.

So I looked up how to make a low fuel light circuit and found this (source: http://realbig.com/miata/1996-03/1840.html and http://users.telenet.be/miata/english/mi...fuel.htm):

I'm no electrical guru, but I was thinking it'd be a snap to make one of these on a proto board, slip it into the space under the temp/fuel gauges in the cluster, and run a small led up next to the fuel gauge or utilize one of the unused idiot lights in the cluster.

I'm gonna try it at some point (in my copious free time, working full time as well as 12 credit-hours of school this term) but I thought I'd see if the various minds had any suggestions prior to doing so.
