i just thought of something...

you said you might add another LED stip on the bottom right? why dont you keep the top on as brake light and add a bottom one and make it parking lamps...

this way you'll have it running dim with parking lamps and bright with brakes

It looks like the middle one but has more of a pig tail to it and is about 10 inches long. What i did was pushed the clip on the drivers side first on the bottom (toward the trunk latch) angled the 4th brake light up like a hinge and it popped right out. I didn't break the clip but bent it a tad but formed right back to shape when it came time to installing.
