Neutral Switch

Our transmissions seem to have a Neutral switch. (aka: Idle Switch, 23-00-7-707146)

Has anyone added a neutral indicator light? (or re-purposed the green turn signal light?)

Yosemite

A little ride to Yosemite last winter.
The road on which I'm parked is solid ice.
Kinda fun on street tires.
