*To anyone else who may wants to reply regarding this statement Yes I do know that concerning the DOT having an approved lens is needed to be in compliance and a person may get fined if the DOT numbers are not present.

If anyone wants pictures of the parts I already have made send me your email and I'll send then over. I have issues posting pictures on the forum. I have not yet made a third break light but I'm Confident I can make them. And yes ABS plastic. I have been making the wing air scoops and radio housings As well.

Patrick,

I'm in San Antonio and would really like to view the third brake light. BTW, I have an OEM third brake light if you want to use it. Thanks! Jon
