I have upgraded my master cylinder to a dual chamber but it doesn't have a connection for the brake switch. Looking to put on under the hood but with this setup, I'm shaking my head.

You will have to run your brake light wiring back through the firewall inside the car and make up a switch that works off the brake pedal arm. A few FL members, including myself have done this when upgrading to a modern dual chamber master cylinder. Starting in 1962 Chrysler used a switch mounted on the bracket holding the brake pedal assembly. I installed one of those with some slight mods to make it work in my 60 Chrysler.

Or install a tee fitting in one of the brake lines and install the original hydraulic switch.

I welded an L bracket to the pedal assembly.
