Default 3rd Brake Light Cover/Overlay

I found a place that sells 3rd brake light overlays
3RD BRAKE LIGHT OVERLAYS
^Link^

Im waiting on reply to see if I can get a chevy bowtie one made

If not, anyone know any sites/places that do custom work like that, and can make me a chevy bowtie cutout to go over my 3rd brake light?

Personally, I just cannot get "into" 3rd brake light covers ... I found a few donor MC's & Impala's & a local junkyard, & was able to strip a few factory 3rd's from them, ... Intention(s): Play around with changing the LEDs in them. I know I can get brighter ones, obviously different colors, etc.

Before anyone jumps up, I am obviously NOT going to re-solder up a 3rd with something illegal, though around these parts, ... just ONE thing "off kilter", & you may as well have your "license, registration, & proof of insurance" readily available. God, the sooner I can get out of Onondaga County, the better ... Because God forbid if ya roll 35 in a 35 on brightly-lighted streets with just your parking & legal colored fogs on, on a Saturday night at 9:30pm, you just MUST be up to no good. Ugh.

But the idea was to see what a couple real bright blue ones on the ends would look like ... give a purple tint through the red lens ... or if really brighter reds all across would be cool, or if whites (clears) are a better choice. Each of my brake/tail & turns LEDs fixturs have 45 LEDs a piece in them, & common sense proved that 90 LEDs are collectively brighter than a 12-14" PCB strip of 14 red LEDs in the stock 3rd. Since I have a few, I can play with a few, & have my original as a control, because I pulled the one from my car before I stored it.

I dunno, just trying something I have not heard someone else going ... at least on here ... yet. /

I have ZERO connection with the following, but I rarely buy from anywhere else but LED Lights, Bulbs & Accessories - SUPER BRIGHT LEDS for my LED, flashers, resistors, etc.

Go for it

I want to do the led tail lights conversion...but I don't know.

I want to make my running lights...like european running lights...with the row of LEDs

I don't know what to do though....
