UPDATE ON POST 20!!

I am planning on shading my third brake light and I can not decide on which design I want to go with. I have a buddy that makes stickers and vinyls. So I was going to have him make me a sticker, place it on my third brake light, nite shade over it, and then remove it so the brake light will shine through where the sticker was.

1st option


2nd option

Update! Well I finally got around to doing this. Now all I need to do is wet sand and have them clear coated at a shop.

i don't know how well the second option will look when finished. it's hard with break lights because you really need to be CLOSE to the car like literally right behind it to actually read them. even my tiburon third brake light on my high spoiler is not visible to read unless you are the car behind, -says my friend..

good luck though i chose option 2 and i hope it works out well.

I have mine completely night shaded and I havent had any problems, if anything it will make it so you dont get pulled over because you will actually see the brake light.

Uhh it's not exactly the same thing. There is no sticker on the light. I did have a sticker on it that's how I got the design. I niteshaded over the sticker and pulled it off. I'm dropping it off at a shop tomorrow for clear coating.

Nice. Looking forward to seeing how it turned out.

I just about forgot about this thread. Anyways I had this done a couple of weeks ago. Personally it turned out really great IMO. But the only down fall is that it's completely too dark. You can not see it unless you get right up on the car and that's during the day. I eventually came to the conclusion that I like it the way it is. I don't have to worry about my car being easily identifiable. Plus for anyone who thought it might look ricey or tacky it's really not noticeable. Even if I hit the brakes it just looks like I missed niteshading a small piece.



I had to use flash today just to get the contrast.


At night it's pointless how dark you shade your third brake light I used about 15 coats of niteshade and I softly wet sanded with 1000 grit. It still shines through the niteshade really well.
