brake light switch for'59 power disc conversion

I did the CPP power disc brake conversion on the '59 Fridge and am having trouble figuring out how to hook up a brake light switch. Any help with that?
Thanks!!

You can put a tee in the line right after the MC and install your original switch. It dosen't even have to be up in your face if you make the wires longer.

Hobbs Did you convert your tubing size? or stay with 1/4 tubing. I stayed with 1/4 inch and ran in to a couple of issues, but as far as the brake sending unit goes most hydraulic s/u are 1/8 pipe size but you can get some which fit the 3/16 tubing size inverted flare fitting. Seams most brake line adaptor fittings are either inverted flare or AN with 3/16 tubing being more common than 1/4, when you get into the accessories. I ended up using a 7/16 x 24 thread IFF tee and a reducer from that to the 3/16 tubing size sending unit which is 3/8 x 24 thread.
Clear as mud? I was dizzy, trying to piece it together.
Might be easier to go mechanical.
Good luck in your quest.
