4th brake light triangle outline mod

Hey guys, has anyone made a 4th brake light that outlines the triangle instead of it looking 'filled in' with a bunch small LEDs? Similar to the outlined square 4th brake lights on WRXs or 370zs

I'm not a fan of valentis and i think this blinking outlined triangle would look sick

There are a bunch of kits to make it work as a running light or brake light.

Just google 4th brake light frs and you should find the conversion kits.

I wish I could snap a screen pic but the first option is for ijdmtoy led 4th brake light kit. Second link is for a post on this forum with how tos and discussions...

Not sure if you're going to find a led rope outlined triangle.

Yeah I was hoping to see if anyone has done it before, but I'm guessing it's either too much work or they're complacent with the regular triangle

...or maybe it would like dumb and cheesy, so they didn't bother.

mine is a little more complex, i liked the flat bar style of the brz concept better




but anything is possible if you're willing to make your own circuit boards!

So you're saying that a triangle is more dumb and cheesy than a square?
Did a girl break your heart whilst learning about acute triangles in geometry class?
