Working on a 2010 mustang. Was able to do the lights easily. However I am looking to install backup lights and break lights (without adding break pedal). Can someone guide me on the right direction?

Thanks in advance

You could use a relay on the gas pedal that you set to turn on the brake lights when the gas pedal is not pressed. Similarly you could put a relay on the shifter that turns on reverse lights when it is switched to reverse. This would be one of many ways to accomplish this. Let me know if you need more detail than that.

I am actually looking at doing the same thing right now as well as adding a gear indicator on the dash so I can tell from behind what gear she is in before she hits the pedal.

What would you use for the gear indicator, LEDs or a gauge of some sort?
