Sorry for not getting back to you guys sooner. The overlay is kinda big. I traced over the 3rd brake light on the car then cut it out and cut the decals to the traced piece, then stuck them on. You guys were right they won't be coming off anytime soon I did mess up though I forgot to sand down the # and letters on the lens so it is raised a bit, but other than that looks good. Gonna replace it but i'm going to wait till the guy makes me up a couple of SLE door badge overlays. Have a look at my cardomain, page 2, last picture.
95SLE DON'T FORGET TO SAND THE LENS..........

I didnt sand mine. Worked fine (little raised at the top) but you can tell unless your right up on it.

I made one in work in white to match my color.we have a plotter that makes office name plates using white vinyl. I put PONTIAC on it. I kept it on for a couple of weeks then removed it. I liked how it looked in daylight but didnt at night with the brakes on.
just looked like a glaring white brake light.maybe black would look better.
I gotta get a digy and cardomian site one of these days.

I tried to put the decal on this morning and I failed. I was never able to line up the 2 stage decal so it looked acceptable to me. I even took the light off of the trunk and sanded down the raised letters but I did not have an easy time with the project. At least it was not an expensive project.

Does anyone know where I can buy a decent single stage decal?

Already located one at http://www.vinzdecals.com/3rdbrake.html

Maybe i am too old to see but when trying to align up the colored overlay I could not see through the opaque decal paper to properly align the red outer decal with the black inner decal. At least the next one will be easy to install. I sent away for four of the decal color samples to try and get an attractive match to the exterior color of the car.
