3rd Brake Light Replica Done

I moved this out of the 3 page post so it would be on its own.
O.k. First one is done and it looks great. Heavier metal than the original. Looks stock and is just like the original and is a replica of mine off of my 94 ST. I don't believe there is any difference from a 94 vs. 95 vs. 97. You can PM with your paypal information.

Pricing - $230 plus shipping for semi-gloss black spraypainted version
$260 plus shipping for Semi-gloss black powder coated version

Shipping will be FedEx ground. If the cost of shipping is going to deter you from purchasing this than please don't purchase it as I just do not have the time to put together shipping quotes with my work and a 4 month old. You can do your own research on what you estimate shipping would be by measuring your own bar and going to fedex.com under ground shipment and please remember that there is a difference in the cost to ship to a residence vs. a business. Business is cheaper.

Note there appeared to be a lot of interest early on when I started the previous post, but I think I missed the boat. Stephen at Safari Resto is making them in aluminum at a lower price point in the Vendor's loft section.
Either way this would be a great time to replace your rusty soft top brake light bar

3rd brake light

O.k. here are some photos. The bar on the right of the screen is my original off the truck on the replica is on the left. I can send these to anybody if they want to do a closer look. Please let me know if you are interested. I have had one person place an order so far. Please remember that these are made from stronger than stock steel so if you happen to whap them with a stack stuff on them they should hold up better than stock or aluminum.

Bump! on the brake bar as the shop is making a couple under tub supports now as well and I can send everything to powder coat at once.

Marcus,
Not sure. If I type in "3rd brake light on ebay there is about 9000 hits for one. I am sure that there is something that will fit and work, just a matter of doing the research. I can try to call truck light tomorrow and see if they have something that is capatible. How close are you trying to stay to stock or do you care?
