Default 3rd Brake Light Dimensions

On a 1993 SE, what is the dimensions of the 3rd Brake light in the rear window? I have an idea that might look cool, kinda like what harofreak did.

edit: please vote in the poll with the pictures two posts down for the 3rd brake light color options.

Thanks,
Andrew

I vote #1. I think that all the red light showing in the second example would blur the edges of the black "Pontiac" too much. I think it would look better with 'Pontiac" in red.

If you could do it with a red gel, with the PONTIAC oulined in black, and cut ot, so you kinda end up with 2 colors of red, that'd be cool...
