Fabric over third break light replacement?

I took out my third break light that was inside my car because I got a spoiler...

Re: Fabric over third break light replacement?

can just go to a fabric store and buy some, then wrap it on top of the whole rear deck. I'm about to wrap mine with suede to match the rest of the parts I've already wrapped.

x2. Just get some fabric that you like and lay it in. I'm getting a spoiler soon so I will be doing the same thing.

Re: Fabric over third break light replacement?

I also totally just did this, I got some black felt and it matches hella good. Wrapped the hole thing and imo it looks really clean, used some fabric glue and just some regular staples, looks oem to me.

yep I have the same square hole in mine. I havn't covered it yet as I may be getting the Type M spoiler? Is that what they call it? (Mugen replica) I'm not too sure if that has the third brake light in it or not.

that just happens to be what I'm doing cause I've already done the door panels, center counsol, and the side mirror inner covers. After I wrap my extra Base rear deck, I can sell my SH rear deck
