Has anyone tried removing the factory 3rd brake light from a later year model and replacing it with an LED strip? I have an '86 and the 3rd brake light blocks a lot of the rear view.

I placed my LED Hella OEM style 3rd light at the bottom, absolutely no obstructions.

Thanks Porwolf.

However, I'm not worried about installing an LED afterwards. I'm more worried about removing the old one without any collateral damage.

Do not use a razor blade when removing the adhesive as not to damage the defrost element on the rear glass.
