Nightshaded Custom 3rd Brake Light

Finally quit thinking about it & just did it! Updated my "Cyclones" third brake light to nightshades similar to OBZ's. I taped off around the oval shape so original red still shows around the edges, and removed the 3/4" letters when finished so they're the full red too. Used rolled up painters tape to remove glue remnants left from the letters.

Turned out much better than the ebay decal I'd purchased. Problem with it was the total blackout of the black vinyl, the letters were too big/close together/hard to read, and the decal shape didn't match the brake light shape perfectly.
