1963 Convertible - No Backup Lights

The backup lights worked on my '63 Series 62 convertible when I bought it in July, but have stopped working. All other lights work fine. There is no power coming to the connectors behind the license plate and the fuse is good. Any thoughts? I'm thinking it must be the connection at the neutral safety switch (NSS)? Any ideas before I start taking things apart?See More
