Default '55 Ford backup light switch

Does somebody have a '55 Ford with 3 on the tree and the optional backup lights? Could you take some pictures of the switch and how it mounts on the column>

Thanks! These pictures along with the schematic that Wellcraft 17 is sending should get me going. I have a NOS switch but it didn't come with instructions on how it mounts.
