Default High Level Brake Light

Hi
We are thinking of putting a high level brake light in the back of our estate. Has anyone done it as we would prefer a stick on one rather than drill holes in the car and if so what light have you used
Thanking you in advance

In my experience things that are stuck on tend not to stay stuck on for long - some exceptions like interior mirrors on modern cars but on the whole I find "sticking things on" as an unreliable option. But good luck - don't let me put you off.

If you happen to have a tow bar with the associated electrics then rigging up an extension lead to your new light should be easy enough. If you don't have a tow bar etc then perhaps this is a good moment to consider that too?

3M VHB double sided tape hood for sticking things on. Used it for 3rd brake light 5 years ago, still stuck.

Thank you, we have a tow bar as have a caravan but at the moment the headliner is out so easy to wire in
