How do I fix the reverse lights

I have a 69 Z-28 with what appears to be the original wiring in excellent shape. Everything works fine except the right front turn signal and the reverse lights. I am pretty sure the turn signal problem is going to be the switch. Ground and the bulb have been checked. I don't have a clue how to get the reverse lights to work. I have a Tremec 5 speed and nothing is hooked up to any of the electric connections on the tranny. Info on this tranny seams to be scarce. A little guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Re: How do I fix the reverse lights

Search "TKO reverse switch" here, been covered many times. Just need to extend the pink and green wires from the OE switch at the base of the steering column (assuming it is an original Z) to the reverse lamp switch (two terminals) on the side of the TKO.

Front turn signal on a 69 can often be a ground issue; light grounds through the housing to the valence panel, and either corrosion or paint can cause issues with the grounding.
