Nice. Thanks for the info. If you get a chance a video showing them in the daylight would be cool.

I have avoided putting normal LEDs because they are not much brighter than incandescent.  These plasma bulbs are brighter.

Are those nice and bright outside in the daytime? Iíve only seen a couple cars with aftermarket led bulbs that 1: are bright enough to be seen outside on a bright day which I attribute to proper light displacement inside the housing and 2: that have enough of a noticeable change between low power (tail lamp) and high ( brake or turn signal).

the roofline is already low on these, many roof mounted lights would be in the field of view. Never heard of plasma led tail lights, if they are busy updating the status on their phone I don't think it matters what they are.

I was thinking high on the rear glass.  Trying to do anything to not get rear ended.  Already did plasma led tail lights....

A long time ago I looked, nothing suitable that was correct angle for top or bottom or that looked inconspicuous or belonged there, most looked cheap and nasty that were universal. Generally speaking, if it has a rear spoiler already it would be annoying with a red glow out the window when you touch the brakes, same reason production cars lose them from the window if they have one in the spoiler, along with not being visible.

HI Guys, anyone put in a 3rd brake light?  I thought it would be easy finding a high quality super bright light but it has not been.

If you have done this, please share.

Thanks!

Hard to tell without pics. Is it stock? It should have a Rochester 4 barrel carb. The mounting gasket should also be about 1/2 thick. There were changes tot the scoops over the years. This article describes some to of the changes.  http://www.78ta.com/Pages/shaker.htm

Hopes this helps.

No pics yet.  Maybe I'll have a chance to take some this weekend.  I have dozens of dash bezel trim rings in all sizes.  The repops sell new for $16 each shipped.  Mine aren't new, but they are OE, and will probably need to be sprayed to look new.   Anyway... how about $50 for a set of (2) large rings, (1) intermediate ring used for oil/water gauge between the speedo & tach, and (4) small rings used for fuel gauge, voltmeter, and two A/C vents: shipped TTL48.  $40 for a full non-A/C set )minus the two small A/C rings for those cars without A/C).    I also have about 4 bare bezels (all A/C sets IIRC) for sale.  They are driver quality only and would need to get some Randy Combs love to be show-worthy.  $50 each shipped TTL48.  I think they are all 75-79 style  with holes for RTS emblem and arrowhead signal style.
