4th Brake Light Delete

Once my car is back together, it's going to the tint shop. I can't stand the look of it cut out of the tint. In fact, my own personal opinion is having the back window brake light and the spoiler light is just too much.

So I took some 1/4" ABS plastic, cut out the shape, rounded over the edge on my router table, and covered it in the left over leather from my mini tub adventure.

I took ABS cement and laminated 3 layers of little 1"x1" blocks to function as feet. Put stainless screws thru the 4 slots in the back deck so it is secure.

Not for everyone I'm sure, but I like it better than the light housing.

Nice clean job and it's reversible if you ever have to reinstall the light.
