Nite-Shaded 3rd brake light

Sorry for the crappy pictures. My camera's at my dad's house and i didn't feel like driving all the way there to get it. Anyways, wanted to experiment with Nite-Shade(got a free can and figured I'd like to try it) so I took off the 3rd brake light, cleaned it really well and sprayed it with two medium coats. Topped it all off with 3 coats of clear. It looks pretty dark in these pictures but in the sunlight it's not that dark which is what I was going for. Let me know what you think.

That's pretty much exactly how my third brake light looks with the niteshade. the tails are pretty close to that as well.

Looks good.

No idea what team realtree is though

Thanks. I'm just worried now that I won't get my tails to match the 3rd brake light.

My 98 has the third brake light with cargo lights. This may sound stupid but I can't figure out how to turn on the cargo lights. The bulbs are good and the brake light comes on but no go on the cargo lights.

Roll up the switch that dims your interior lights until it clicks......Cargo lights should turn on then!
