Nice setup. That switch is very similar to the ones that are used to indicate the door pins are engaged on a Learjet.
Much better switch that the little micros.
Also neat bracket fab from an extruded angle. Anyone can come up with something complicated. Something simple
but effective is always more difficult.
Mind if I flatter you by copying it?

Should work alot better than the little switch. We mount them so the top of the gas pedal contacts the switches on the Outlaw 10.5 cars we build...usually a bracket welded to the dash bar.
