3rd Brake Light Bracket

Anyway wanted to guage interest for 3rd brake light bars for soft tops. I dropped mine off at the machine shope and he is going to give me a price on reproducing it. Anyone have an interest in a copy that will be powdercoated in semi-gloss black? Please let me know.
Clay

Close enough - the little holes for the bottom screws that hold the third brake light on (I think there are 2 holes out of the 5) may not be counter sunk but yes a very close match with rounded corners on the mounting brackets to the tailgate, not squared off.

Definitely understand on the pricing and won't go through with it if it is not going to be economical. It is a shame that so many of us have ones that are pitted, rotted or we just had to flat our remove them as they fell to sh*t. Even the one I dropped off to him had pitting as the truck spent the first 6 years of its life around the New England area before coming to California to get a tan .

Clay - in addition to price, I think originality is very important. If it's clearly different from OEM I think that will turn people off...

Mine has been blasted and coated, but the bracket area was so pitted that it came out very lumpy. If affordable and original, this would be a nice aesthetic upgrade.

It seems that the machinist is on board with making them look original, he is just working on how to get the proper bends as it is a tight s bend on one side of the mount. mine is just like yours been blasted and powder coated but you can still see the pits on the mounting plates.

What's the plan for the actual light itself? I thought they were NLA.

Hey Clay not to steal your thunder or this tread, but I have been playing with the idea of making it out aluminum. Now I know that some people get their rocks off on it being exactly like OEM, but my thinking is what is the point if it well just rust and corrode again. Is there any interest or am I alone on this?
