Reverse Light Switch

We have installed a lot of extra lights on our MOG.  On the back, there are two 12V lights with rubber housings, wired in series.  There is a switch on the dash to turn these on, it can be very handy to be able to see behind you well at night, like trying to back into a good camping spot!!!  It is also convenient to have the lights turn on automatically when the transmission is in reverse.

There is a momentary push button switch mounted to a tab of steel bolted to the transmission housing.  When the forward/reverse lever is in reverse, the lever pushes on the switch, turning on the backup lights.  We've had a little trouble with getting the steel tab adjusted just right, but when it is working, this solution works very well.
