Default Custom made 4th brake light

Had a 16" 48 LED brake light added to the rear spoiler. Those old geezers down here better not run into me now!

Lt Almond GT,

You can't purchase it. It was custom made by the body/paint shop that I have all my work done here in Florida. As far as I know, I'm the only one to have it, but I'm sure the aftermarket folks will probably come out with one sooner or later.

Should be high enough to be seen by those peering though their steering wheel...
I'd add retro-rockets just in case!

Very slick job they did.[|)]

man you better add some flashing lights, couple strobes, maybe a flashing bingo sign or two and just for good measure some of those big orange cones attached to the rear bumper with, what else, reflective duct tape.

Jaxpt,
He shouldn't use the flashing bingo sign, because it will send them into excitement overload at the site of bingo and they will crash into CREWZIN for sure .

Nice mod, hope you shade some light on how you got the led.

I had the idea for quite awhile and went looking for a long LED light that I've seen on other cars. Finally I found a place on the web: http://www.hamsar.com/chmsl.htm that sells CHMSL (Center High Mounted Stop Light) and I ordered Model 200. Meanwhile my body/paint guy that I was talking to found a wrecked car with a spoiler LED that happen to be the exact light I ordered. He cut the light out from the wreck and cut into the solid spoiler that I had to make it fit. We found out that the PT spoiler is a continuous curve and the 16 inch light was flat so the spoiler had to be built up in the center by just a fraction to make it meet the LED. A grove was made from the light to the end to hide the wires and then filled in and he hid the wires perfectly in the double wall of the tailgate over to the OEM 3rd brake light and spliced into the OEM wires. It was all painted again to match the rest of the PT. It was 5 days worth of work and although the shop only charged $250, that doesn't reflect the amount of work that was done and it would be probably double that for anyone else. The same shop has painted my bumpers, mirrors, flames and engine parts so I've gotten to know them really well.
