[T3] a few misc items...

I have several projects lined up for my square, but before I dived in I
wanted to ask a few questions.

About the rear defrost. my back window looks good (conducting wires seem to
be in great shape) and I have wires that run back there, so, I'd like to get
it functioning.  While playing around with my voltmeter, I notice that when
I turn on the switch for the rear window, I get .05 V from one wire to the
other (when I disconnect the wires that slip on the rear window and measure
across those) and the resistance from one terminal on the window to the
other terminal is around 3500 ohms.  Where should I begin to look for
troubleshooting this, I really want this to work.

Also, after putting my car back together recently, I'm missing a few
nuts/bolts/screws and was wondering if I could get some help with the sizes,
here's what I need:
  Screw that holds in sun visor clip
  Screw/bolt that holds on front turn signals

My gas gauge is not functioning properly; I know at least the gauge is bad,
because it changes values when I tap it, where should I start here?  Is
there anything I can do to fix it if it's "bad"?  I am an EE student so I
can handle electrical stuff if need be.

Last, but certainly not least, my front drivers side turn signal needs some
work.  I don't believe that the wires are hooked up correctly and I can't
figure out which combination of wires to terminals will make it work.  Is
there any advice of what to look for with a voltmeter as far as which wire
should be which and which one will go where?

Sorry for posting these all in one big post, I just have a lot of little
random projects I want to work on this weekend and the archive search wasn't
working for me today.
