I actually installed an after-market "3rd Brake Light" in the rear window of my 2000TC
for safety reasons. It is installed with 2-sided tape & is easily removed for car
shows if I so desire. I bought it at Auto Zone or Advance for $20.00. Easy on-easy off
& it's fairly attractive & it adds a bit of visibility over & above those old, small,
dim OEM lights.
