66 Backup Lights

Well, for the first time today, my 66 has its backup lights working.

The original column shift switch is still in the car, but the plug was cut off. The car came to me with a BM floor shifter, and no switch.

The tko has a switch and came with the plug, so I finally wired it.

Probably need to clean the taillight housings for a good ground, but they both light up!!!!!!

Re: 66 Backup Lights

Feels good to get little things working again! Drives me crazy if a light or glove box latch or whatever does not work like it should.

Put some 1156 LED bulbs in there and they will look even better. I also put LED's in my brakes and front turn signals. looks clean!
