These people make a cool after market reverse switch & bracket

www.lokar.com

I saw it in a march hot rod mag ( forgot the title of the rag)

and you will have to dig a bit at this site..

But it was a trick setup ( not to knock yours, but it was a bit "Oil Can!")

Thanks,

I am dropping them a line. Right now I only see them for automatics.


I agree. That has to be about the most Bubba thing on my car. If I run with it, I should at least take some time to cut and trim the bracket down to the bare minimum.

Mike,

You made a great point by giving me this info. In fact, I did some searching, and found nothing bolt on to do the trick.

I need your input when you guys see me making a major blunder. Mike, you called it right. That bracket looked like Bubba was having a brain fart day.

So, since there is nothing right away available, I sharpened my pencil, got out the hacksaw, grinder, paint, etc. and came up with this.

Does that look any better?

Here is what it looked like before.

Got the rag

Street Scene March 2002 issue
( a publication of the national street rod ass.)


On page 29 I see the bracket & switch however it is inverted for your application ( I think ) could be the slide is backwards when they set the add.

Their # 1-865-966-2269

Note
I could not find this part on their web page
and of course there is no part # in the add

It just sez Backup light and neutral safety switch ( lower right corner of add )
