Default Mechanical brake light switch & 39 pedals

Converted my 37 truck to hydraulic brakes using 39 pedals. Just wondering if anyone is using the original 37 mechanical stop light switch with 39 pedals. Can't seem to find a good way to mount it so the pedal with push on the switch.

I use a mechanical lever type switch from an older C^*vy pickup. Mounts to the underside of the floorboard.

You could use the hydraulic switch, BUT some people claim to have issues with them (short live span).
