Well, this past week, I've been working on getting the reverse lights working in the Nova. The car was originally a colum shift and the previous owner put in a floor shifter, but didn't bother to get the reverse lights working when the car is shifted into reverse. So, I bought a switch and bracket from Jeg's and installed them on the shifter. Then I cut the wires going to the original switch on the column and spliced some new wire on to them so they could reach the shifter. The lights work great now! I also repaced both tail light assemblies. The bezels around the lenses were a little beat up plus the lenses weren't the correct year for that car. Got some nice new ones for a '72 ;-) The last thing I have to do today is install new reverse light sockets. The old ones work fine, but they are in bad shape....best to just fully replace them.
