Re: Wiring for Back-Up Lights?
Jim... its a '69 Camaro.
Brian... Car is on the lift at Road Runner right now so I can't check... but I'm pretty sure the linkage you're talking about is long gone. IIRC, at the column as it exits the firewall there's a lever that appears to be wired in a locked position.
There's no wire anywhere near the trans so I'm assuming that in the restoration process and conversion from an automatic car to a stick car... the BU lights were forgotten. Once I dig around under the dash, I'll probably find something running from the fuse block or harness. Thats why I asked about whether there was a color code wire I should be looking for.
Figuring the tail lights are all working and grounded, so also going to check the BU sockets to see what wires are coming out of there. Needless to say, as John said... just need keyed-on power to go to the switch, then back to the light harness. Its not a big deal, but just another of those little things you'd like to get working.
If the Gods smile on me tomorrow, I'll hopefully go pick her up. Major front-end steering, brakes, suspension upgrades should put a smile on my face.
