3rd brake light & wheel carrier

Hi All,I have been trying to find a 3rd brake light for my soft top build however they are rare as hens teeth however I think they look odd with the light hanging past the tyre, i had also wanted to move my high lift jack to the rear so out with the spinning spanner.
I moved the tyre closer to the center of the door and made a baseplate for the jack, it will have a lock bar which is not fitted yet.

I bent up a length of tube to the same radius as a 33" tyre and slotted it to take a led 3rd light from a car in a brakers yard cost 2.00 ..well pleased.

I have just finished tacking it up tonite, I'll get my son to weld it up as it comes in handy having a proffessional metal sticker in the family.

comments welcome.

I love it. What does the light look like?

Almost a bit modern/new age for a defender but love the look.
