3rd Brake Light

Anybody know where I can buy 1? I found one online but just for the third brake light itself was $135 and I'm not trying to spend that much on a single light. Mine looks like someone tried to sand it down or something, and you can barely tell it works.

Re: 3rd Brake Light

probably to remove oxidation, you can sand it and buff it back out actually (sometimes)

Re: 3rd Brake Light

If none of the restoration techniques work on it, try Mustang Salvage yards like MPS Auto Salvage and Prestige Mustang.

I recently bought a handful of parts from Derek at MPS and they were great to work with. 3rd brake lights from GT's, Mach 1's and 99/01 Cobras will fit the v6's, so there's bound to be a decent used one out there.

Re: 3rd Brake Light

Just check MPS and they have them for $75.

99 00 01 02 03 04 MUSTANG 3RD BRAKE LIGHT TAIL THIRD

American Muscle has the black LED one for $89...guess it's up to you on which one you'd want.
