yeah that'r right after a four speed to five speed conversion than what you have to do is to wire up the five speed reverse switch up to the c500 so then you can have your reverse lights be activated by the reverse switch on the new transmission so yeah just hook the wires to c500 and run them to the reverse switch and put on a connector and then your lights should work when you shift into reverse and everything should be fine and then it will all work good and yeah!!!!

Technically that will work...but do yourself a favor....wire it correctly into the c500.

You can do it either way. Here's the schematic for the 5-speed cars in case you find it useful:

I did mine following instructions from Phonedawgz . It took me about a half hour and it's done right.
