Default 3rd Brake light added

I decided to play around with adding a 3rd brake light to the bottom of the bumper since my new enclosure covered the taillights. I had a tailgate light kit that I wasn't using so I added a small medal strip to the bumper and affixed the lights to it. It's spit left and right so when I add the blinker kit I will be able to hook the lights to it as well.

I use this cart for the golf course as well as running around the neighborhood so having taillights is a safety must. I painted the background black so it blends in with the bumper. Looks pretty good and is nice and bright.

I added a 3rd brake light also but I attached mine to the back of my roof. Nice and bright LED light. I'm street legal so I'm always watching my rear view mirror for "that person." Those rear tail lights on the street legal kits are awfully small.

How about posting some pics. I just ordered one and plan to mount it on the roof and run the wires down the roof supports.

Exactly what I have been researching, just can't seem to find the right light.....

Look on ebay for an under the kitchen cabinet led light, about 16" long with removable cover; paint the inside of the cover red; they're about $5.00

Just ordered these and gonna give them a try. These are waterproof and sealed, lots of salt in the air down here, so I don't think under counter lights would last very long, but great idea...

This is the one I ordered. It hasn't arrived yet so I can't comment. I figured at the price I didn't have much to loose.

I actually looked at that one, but I wanted one that mounted flat on the roof's edge and the lowest profile I could find. Let me know how yours works out, and Ill post pic's of mine this weekend or early next week...should be here Saturday....

Not to highjak, but I was looking at these little 3/4 round lights to put on the front and back of the Precedent roof. Amber / front - red / back.
Kind of like a big rig with five across the front and back.
