Default Hidden Turn Signal Bracket.

I had to make a bracket to mount a small turn signal switch (to replace the big ugly switch attached to my steering column with a hose clamp) behind the dash rail of my 29 tudor. I made a video of the process since it may help others with the same idea. Click here to see it.

Wondering how you replace the compound TS switch with that SPDT?

The bracket could be modified for more switches and TS pilot light(s).

That's what I was wondering.

I do have SPDT switch mounted behind the dash rail but it is a simple stand alone system without all the bells and whistles that your type of system has. It is mounted to one of the tank bolts.

It is part of an all electronic turn signal system which doesn't need a heat activated flasher, is self canceling, supports indicator lights if you want, and allows you to used cowl or fog lights as turn signal lights by just flashing the side toward which you are turning if they are on when to signal a turn.

Oh, I see. You're not just replacing the turn signal switch shown in your video with the SPDT switch, your replacing the whole system.

The way your video starts off I was under the impression that you were just replacing the switch.

Sorry, I guess I could have been more clear about the nature of the whole project.
