vanagon third brake light

We found a LED brake light online that was wider than the version GoWesty sells. This light did not stick to the back window with double stick tape so the challenge was figuring out how to mount it. We thought about mounting it to the back hatch, but that would mean drilling into the hatch and leaving some exposed wire. We opted for mounting the light on the air conditioner’s evaporator housing.

We used the threads from the housing screws and placed brackets to hold the light in place. The light sits less than 1/2 inch from the window and does not have any reflection or glare. It looks great from the outside and works perfectly. The only issue now is whether the curtains will remain in place or not. We’ll see.
