Re: [T3] Electric/Mechanical Brake Switch

Looks quite nice and neat. I hadn't thought of triggering off that step in the
pedal frame like you did. I think I'd prefer a location that didn't come so
close to the angled foot plate, however. If you had moved it to one side or the
other could you have taken advantage of one of the pressings in that foot

I first planned on mounting it to the angled foot plate, but while fiddle around with it, decided that the foot plate was not stiff enough to be a reliable mounting surface and the fact that it was removable meant possibly having to adjust the brake switch anytime the plate was removed. The vertical doubler was perfect for the job of mounting the switch with a very simple bracket and a couple of sheet metal screws.

Seems to work very nicely.  I did have to clearance the angled toe
board a little to clear the switch and bracket.  The carpet did not
need to be cut.  I am a little concerned about the switch getting wet
during use.....from stuff dripping off my shoes.  I will look into
making a small shield for it or maybe just coat the connections with

Doesn't the angled foot plate cover it?

I actually had to clearance the angled foot plate for the adjustable bracket on the switch. The carpet does mostly cover it so I think I am ok from a water dripping standpoint.
