    Here is a album with pics and a video of how it looks.

    Just cut and paste if link does not work.

    They look great IMO (of course) : ) All of them have their tabs intact for screwing back on. One or two might have one tab partially broken but a washer will fix it. They are jsut right by the screw tab hole. I have two ready to ship. It comes with the emblem too. Direct plug and play.

    Re: 3rd brake Light LED Conversion

    $175 OBO shipped to your door. I decided not to do the core thing. Unless you want to. it would be $190 but you have to return me your light and I will give you $50 back so you would be paying only $140. You can send me pics of your 3rd brake light before you send so we wont have any confusion with refund due to your light having broken tabs, cracks, etc.

    I'm sure you know these lights non-working go on ebay for around $175. So for $175 or $140 you get a working converted LED 3rd brake light.

    PM if you are really interested so I can give you my Paypal. Maybe I'll cut a deal for the first 3 purchases. : )

    thanks

    Re: 3rd brake Light LED Conversion

    ^^^^ thanks for the thread jack. I know the part is cheap. I'm providing the service and the housing. Some people are not willing to do this for fear of breaking their light. If people want to sende their light I will do it for cheaper but they will be out if a 3rd brake light for a week. Once again thanks.

    maybe you should become a forum vendor if you are trying to profit on here.
    if you wee a vendor i wouldnt be posting the how to of this that I made, and you may have even used to make yours.
    im sure a mod will drop his foot down on you soon.

    Re: 3rd brake Light LED Conversion

    Thanks Sal for all of your help. I am now an "authorized" vendor. Sal clarified some things for me.

    So now on with sales.

    These lights come with a warranty of 3 months. just ship it back and I will fix it. If you just want to buy a non working light I can help you with that too and you do the LED mod if you just backed up into a tree (sorry crazybiker51) : )

    $130 shipped for the housing with a non working light.

    thanks for your time.
    I'm interested in one of these but can't PM you due to apparent noob status. If you have one available please contact me at eric.jacobsen at ieee.org. Thanks!
