    In my T-Bucket I really couldn’t find the space to mount a neutral safety switch near the transmission. So I mounted it behind the seat instead, and ran a cable to it. I used a 1960’s Chevy pickup switch, $16 from Amazon. I also used a Schwinn bicycle brake cable from Walmart. The beauty of using an OEM style switch is that the car will start in both park and neutral, when you wire it through the two terminals I am pointing to. You could also use the other two terminals, and wire in backup lights if so desired. I drilled multiple holes in the switch “lever” to adjust the amount of travel. After about 10 minutes of cable adjustments and trying different holes, I got it to work perfectly.

    It’s starting to look like a Hot Rod!

    Great work and craftiness! It is looking real nice. Are you still under your target goal on the budget? (I can never accomplish that)

    Thanks Ryan!

    Nah, I’m a little over budget, but not too bad. I’ve splurged a little here and there. I’ll do a budget update soon.

    It’s taking a little longer than I’d planned. I’m 2 1/2 years into it now. But I’m happy with how it’s coming out so far, and I’m having fun along the way.

    Today I was working on building the pick up box. Maybe I’ll get some pictures of that up tomorrow.

    That's what really matters! You'll get to cruise it soon enough down there.
