Third brake light

The previous owner of my SH 5th gen did a delete on the stock spoiler with 3rd brake light. So i'm without a 3rd brake light for now. So I've been thinking of different ideas for adding a 3rd. Has anyone seen or tried a red illuminated Honda emblem that is tied in with the brake lights and only illuminates while breaking? That's one of my ideas as long as i can find a set up that has the emblem still looking like OEM. Other choice would be adding a custom red LED break light somewhere in the back window. I would rather not add a wing back on, so im trying to look at other options that may look good if not better.

Re: Third brake light

You could just install a base rear deck and 3rd brake light.


I covered my rear deck with cloth to imitate an SH rear deck - i have no spoiler - and i temporarily installed a thin red LED bar on the rear deck just to pass inspection.

Re: Third brake light

Are you sure the wirings all out? Look around under the trunk and see if you can find it .
Just because the light ain't there, doesn't mean he switche out all the wiring.

BUT, I like that emblem idea, I haven't seen it yet though
