The blue and white wire on the gear selector switch. Cut that wire, extend as necessary and that connects to the reverse light switch on your manual tranny.

there's only 1 wire to the reverse light switch. and that is the blue/white wire. Ground is naturally provided in the engine ground.

conversion cost

it was a lot of fun .well i bought a rusted down crashed reck for $400 usd ,which came with every thing that i needed . all i had to buy was the pilot bearing ,because the owners that had the car told me that they had just changed the clutch ,pressure plate and bearing just before it was in the accident ,so i also changed mine to fuel injection. so i can say i got lucky

I've been thinking about doing this for a log time. How long did it take you to change everything?

Garage
it doesn't take that long to perform the swap

depending on your skills, between 7 hrs and several days. But only if you have all parts.
