Default My new mod with Paint!!!

I decided to do something to my 3rd brake light after I got inspired by seeing Toasty'* light in person. Obviously, I went the cheapo route but looks really good for being so cheap.





You like it?

Yes I'm aware it'* slightly off center but oh well...

Not a big fan, but I've always found overlays to be a bit rice...

Whatever floats your boat though.

ummm....i would try again. it doesnt show up good at night. I also dont like the bright/silver background. I did mine in black, and it seemed to show up better when the brake is on. i only wanted mine visible when the brake is on, to give a wow effect.

wait, you painted it or made an overlay?

Nice way to customize your ride. It would look even better if you can get some red LED'* behind it instead of the single bulb to spread out the light glare.

Nice work!

Damn, looks like I'm not as creative as I thought I was . I saw that it was hard to see at night, (I did this during the day so I didn't know how it would look at night). But I think I might take SSEi95'* advice by using the LEDs.

btw, I painted it. I like things body color so I painted it silver.
