I just updated my site with a couple of better constructed brake light switches (https://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/AltBrakeSwitch.htm). All metal construction and easily adjustable. No more need to bend that stupid mounting tab to get it set correctly against the brake pedal arm. Either one is a perfect replacement for stock switch.

Great info.

Out of curiosity (and knowing this is subject to change with time and the vendor) what were the costs of the two switches you bought?

The BMW one changed since O got mine...... he went from about $7 @ $7 to $11 with free shipping!

Here's their two current auctions:

Oh yea........ still doing stuff though I've been real busy making interior kits, boot covers and fender blankets. All I did all winter was sew! Last month I finally got around to my two major projects:

Wilwood calipers (https://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/WilwoodCalipers.htm) and

VTO Wheels. (https://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/VTOWheels.htm)

I'm glad you have and actually take the time to do these projects Bob. Many here are grateful for your extra effort to find better ways to do things on our cars.

My FLAPS hooked me up with one that as I recall was for a Ford Escort and that has been working fine for about 8 years. I seem to recall that it was very reasonably priced. I'll have to look into what it actually is...
