In the future I would like to take one of the carbon fibre roof spoilers and put a light in there. Could make it look very clean and its high up.

I've once seen a drawing of a bug dragracing a golf in a vw scene magazine I believe, that had the 3rd brakelight in the license plate light nose thing (no idea what it's called, hope it makes sence). Eventough it's doesn't sit much higher then the 2 other brake lights, I thought it was a cool idea. Never seen it for reel though. Would love to see a picture of that set up. Was planning on doing that to mine but.....

great skill and in trepidation also a lot of swearing.

Don't put your brake light anywhere above the rear window, it's illegal. Only cops, ambulance, fire trucks and other emergency vehicles are allowed to have lights on the roof.

A few thousand owners of pickup trucks and vans are running around illegally then?

Maybe the laws are different in Canada, but originally I'm from B.C. too and I don't remember the trucks and vans NOT having 3rd brake lights on the roof.

Third Brake Light

I got one from Summit Racing (summitracing.com).

I replaced the ugly popes nose on the deck lid with this license frame with plate light and third brake light.
