Default fuel sender grounding

Putting 57 back together, everything painted new tank and sender. Just hooked up the sender wire but was wondering if it might be wise to run another wire from one of mounting screws on the sender back into the trunk area to a spot that can cleaned properly for a grounding point. Just thinking about minimizing issues when I hook up the power

If your tank is not painted or cleared a ground strap may not make any difference.
Many folks run a ground strap as a back up, you can go from the fixing screw to the body.

I added one later after my gage quit working. Didn't help. The plastic float failed. Use a brass float if you haven't put it together already.

I also added a ground wire. I attached the ground at one of the tank turn-down corners, then to the frame. I don't know that I needed it, but did so to prevent any problems.

Thanks all for that, glad I am not the only one that does not trust how the tank is grounded after doing a complete redo of your car. I hate crawling under the car at the best on times so I will do it while it is up in air now. Just had to ask

If your tank is painted a ground wire is a good idea.
