Here's how mine came out. It is the one from Daniel Stern. I stuck it to the rear shelf with Blue Tak, but may change to adhesive-backed hook-and-loop.

Thanks for commenting.
I will wait further --- patiently.
FYI --- it has been ~ 10
says since I sent the inquiry to Stern.

Daniel Stern runs a one-person operation. Sometimes he's out. Give him a bit of time and he'll respond to your email. I've had excellent results with his third brake light and Cibie headlights.

OK Gentlemen,

Found this alternative to the slow response by Daniel Stern:

It states it will accomodate 26-75 degrees, seems allot but priced well:

Same thing happened to me when I placed my order Sept last year. It took about 2 weeks for Mr. Stern to acknowledge my faxed order due to a family matter that took him away from his desk. Ultimately, though, the order did arrive. I'm not supporting this kind of customer service, just reporting my experience for your information.

I used the Hella Model 37, 20-36 degrees, from Daniel Stern Lighting. It fits my SC coupe perfectly.

I did the one from the OP, works great. The trick is to get 2 hour black epoxy and cut a piece of PVC or two to fit to jam it in between the rear deck shelf and the mounting brackets while the epoxy sets.

Ooooh, good idea! I think I'll change mine to hook-and-loop.

Since my last post on this thread, I went even more stealth with a far smaller yet much brighter LED setup at the top of the window. It has the added bonus of flashing 4 to 5 times to really get people's attention before going into a steady red. The wires were run though the rubber window seal. The only bummer is that you will need to fab a small bracket to attach it to. It does come with with a self-adhesive back which I used with my bracket. I did not connect the running light wire.

...these look great...now to compare the Knightrider vs the Auto^one long led strip 3rd lite version...
I like the flashing part of the Krider lite...after all , this lite is to get attention vs another red lite turning on...
Thx, Bob

I have this long LED light available for $10 plus shipping - works fine. No mounting hardware, just the LED in its black housing - just apply with double stick tape to it's back. PM if interested.

This is how it looked double sided taped to rear deck - which does not obscure vision

Here's how mine looks in the daytime, no brakes. I changed the fastening method to a strip of adhesive hook-and-loop tape. It isn't going anywhere.

These are on sale right now. 25% off. Under $30 shipped within CONUS. Just bot one after being tailgated heavily twice in the last month. Probably just over-curious looky-loos, but scary nonetheless.

Cheap insurance in my book.

Can you give us your review of this product and maybe a picture of it installed?

Thanks, Thor

I've decided that the big light I mounted low on the window wasn't cutting it for me, and am now moving in the LED strip direction. I looked at the 9" from HB, but bought a similar 5" from evilBay instead. Looks like the same light as the 9", just shorter. Less than $6 shipped. I wrapped the back with black electrical tape, and that turned the whole thing black, it should be almost invisible when not lit. Will post again when I get it installed.
