Default Third brake light?

Anyone use a third brake light on a roadster?

I've see pix of taillights mounted on/in the spare wheel.

Russcochiolo,


How did you make that? Mine wobbles to much.

Here are three photos showing the measurements. I first made the upright following the curve of the 6.50 x 15 tire, then shaped the curved part to match and then welded them together. The material was from the scrap pile. The 4th shows the backside and the cheap belts and the last with brakes applied. It may help to let some air out before attaching the belts and then re-inflate to stop wobbling./Users/williamcochiolo/Desktop/IMG_3341.jpg/Users/williamcochiolo/Desktop/IMG_3342.jpg
