third brake light question

Hey I am thinking of debadging the back end of the car so to speak, I am wondering what you guys would think about taking the intrepid letters off and putting them on my led lit third brake light bar? I wouldnt have anything else back there except the letters on the bar.

I wouldn't, I just think that's a tad bit too much...yet again thats just my opinion. Never seen that before though.

If you are wanting to put the entire INTREPID over the 3rd barke light so it stands out when you hit the brake...not thinking it would look right. Not enough room. Now if you put T R E P over it that might work and maybe look okay. Take your letters off...put clear tape over them and tape them to that area and test it.

I am looking at spreading it over the entire bar because I have the LED's in there. I think I will do the tape idea and see how it goes, unless someone that is good at photoshop can test it out for me before hand.

I actually think that's a pretty neat idea......especially since your entire bar is lit. If it's spaced out evenly it should look nice. Are you thinking of painting if black or OEM?

EDIT: You're thinking of putting the actual badges from the trunk onto the bar? That.....I'm not too sure of. I think it would look more neat if you painted it so that "Intrepid" lights up whenever the LED's are on. But that's just personal preference. Putting the badges on the bar will look nice at night, but in the daytime....that's another story. Just my .02

IMO i think the word "TREP" would look better. If you try that tape idea, take some pics. I am curious on how it would come out.

Well now that you mention your LED mod...might look okay. Dunno. Do the tape thing and take pictures.

I "paint" shopped the letters on the bar because I have a good rear end shot and I'm inferno red so the taillights match closely


Not bad if I say so myself

Sweet...can you do one with them evenly spaced across the bar like every few inches? I want to see what it looks like spread out. Thanks a ton.

Just a thought, you might want to tighten them up a little. That way the TREP will light up with the back up light.
Since you are redoing the Bar (LED project) I would make the back up part light red when in park and driving, and then light up white when in reverse. That way the light serves dual fuctions. You can do it by installing red as well as white LED's. Another thing I would do is have some of the LED's in the light bar connected to the turn signals so that part of the bar would work with the trun signals, how much would depend on you. Since I am on a roll here, you can add the center bar to your brake lights too, that way the whole bar would act as a third brake light. you would need some resistors (for parking lights, and some diodes to control functions.). I better stop before I put a trep rear end on my 300M.
I did this on my 300M lights (the top turn signal was changed to parking/brake/driving light, the center backup was changed to turn/backup light, and the bottom 3 are brake/park/driving). It give a great show when giving a turn signal while in reverse.
