The reversing light switch on top of the gearbox has an ignition switched input and should be a bleck/green wire.It's not very thick though so it would be a VERY good idea to relay it if you want to power anything else from it.

As in come Bring a spur off it to one side of the coil of a relay, then the other side of the coil to earth.

Then feed the common side of the relay with a suitable permanent live. Straight from the battery positive terminal, and use the Normally open (other side) of the relay to run your DRL's
