[Healeys] Back up/ reversing light

There really isnt anywhere on the transmission to install  a switch. How about bypassing the panel light switch on the dash and use that as a switch to turn on a reverse light. We use that one many time for driving lights.

Subject: [Healeys] Back up/ reversing light


I have often thought about installing a back up light on my BJ8.  There are many on the market so actually obtaining a period correct unit is not an issue.

This past weekend, I found myself in a position where I needed to reverse and go forward a couple of times to get out of a parking space.  I decided that I need to look hard at installing the light.

Now, the question is where and how to install it and more importantly, how do I wire the light to come on when I shift into reverse.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.
