Third Brake Light Repair

Hi,

I wanted to post this as a separate message to my huge "D-90 Restoration / Rust" message. I felt that some people might have skiped a message about large restoration projects - but there are a ton of people on this page that have the 3rd brake light problems.

Once again, Gary Landes and Rover Works (410-737-0647) did wonders for my Third Brake Light. Read the "D-90 restoration" thread if you want more details on Gary.

My light showered rust ever time I shut the rear door. There was horrible rust on the bottom plate, and sevearl places of rust on the arm. Gary patched the arm in places, removed the light from the existing plate, made a new plate, and put it all back together.

His price for this work was $100. This was itimized and part of the $675 I paid for the work to the chassis. I think he is EXTREMELY reasonable, and his work is excellent.
