Plus 2 high level stop lamp

Can anyone recommend a high level stop light that fits on the Plus 2 parcel shelf and has a cowl that matches the rake of the rear screen, please? Should be low profile.

I love your car.

Please don't be jealous!

Thanks Jon!

The module is an old style Cobra alarm interior sensor - very retro :lol:

I used one from a BMW E28 Five Series four door sedan (roughly ?82 to ?87). Pretty close to the Plus 2 rear screen slope. Just fastened it with double sided tape so completely reversible. There are a couple of pictures of mine in this thread, along with a few other ideas...

Hi Jon,
I have one in the elan, it was from a Ford Mondeo. I have another as a spare, this was from a Jag. Can't remember what type now, but it was not that old.
Pictures attached. (not that good, but you get the idea)

Regards
