Can someone please take a picture of their back seat where their 3rd brake light attaches to the deck (for those of you with 3rd brake lights inside the car).

I want to see if adding a third brake would be just as easy as cutting a hole in the rear deck for it, or if I had to get a whole new rear deck. I have the small wing with brake light, so I do not have one inside of the car.

Thanks!

I did the JDM 2011 third brake light on my car and traded the rear deck with my buddy that wanted the third brake light in his 2008 wrx. It looks like you would need the rear deck with the hole already there for the brake light but I might be wrong. The brake light it self is just plug and play.

Did it look like I could just source and third brake light and cut some holes in my current deck/shelf for the mounting bolts and wire? There is a groove in mine, i just need to see what the shelf looks like out of the car, or with the third brake light taken out. seems like it might be hard to find a photo of that.

Yea we don't need the 3rd brake light in Oregon.. I run without on my 05 and did so on my 03 as well without issue. Check your state law.

there is a hole that comes from the factory that under the decklid inside the car all you have to do is get the new cover and the light housing and everything fits flush like stock
