    They look good to me. You use the copper washers to set the height of the switches so they engage as the gear is reached.

    Note that the OD is only enabled in 2nd, 3rd & 4th. The reverse position is used for a reversing light (when fitted, not a common option from what I've seen), and I don't know of anything that is enabled in 1st gear.
