Removing the 3rd brake light?

My smoked light came in today. Any de-install/installation tips? The usual service-mode protocol yes?

Eagerly awaiting pics. I've held off buying the smoked 3rd brake light simply because its difficult to tell if it matches the smoked portion of the taillights.

None taken! Ya I shopped around and the options were either clear/chrome-looking or smoked. I figured it matched my smoked tail lights pretty close. Hehe...

I bought the smoked taillight from Eric at Bumperplugs.com. I Paid 74.95 w/shipping to the left caost. It arrives Thursday. Now, all I need is clear halogens. The quest continues. I'll post a close up pic of it when it arrives.

@ Jeff: Ahhh yes the ever evasive clear halogens... I too am seeing these. I might just get tired of waiting and buy a set of lits'!! Put up pics of your smoked lights when you get them up!
