CS130 Alternator, Autometer gauges, and generator light removal...

I'm in the process of wiring Autometer electronic speedometer, tach, and quad gauges in my 1965 Chevelle. I have upgraded to a CS130 alternator. I plan on buying a Painless Plug alternator pigtail with the resistor for the L terminal exciter wire on the alternator. I will not use the Generator light since I am not using the factory gauges. Can I use this wire to power a 12 volt accessory (I need to confirm the gauge of the wire, possibly the Quad gauge)? If not, should I just cut out the plug for the bulb & shrink wrap the wires? If I do this, I should be okay running the wires (brown/brown with white strip to the ignition) that run in parallel with the Generator light wires, correct? Or, should I remove the Generator light plug & solder the wires together eliminating the plug?

I've searched the site but most people want to use the factory Generator light or Amp gauge. Since I don't want the light, I'm open to any suggestions or questions to make sure I do this right the first time.

Thank you!
