These kits are for sale
Customs by Ripper and G-Fam Customs bring you the first of many kits for your ride.
This kit will fit many cars with flat or nearly flat trunklids 46" wide or wider.
The buckets have a slight peak on top and a defined peak on the rear face. These match the light and were molded from an actual DTS trunklid. Please note. The kit does not contain the 3rd brake light itself or the harness for it. Those must be purchased separately. They can be found at any GM dealer or on eBay.
Here's the kit:

Here are pictures taken during the installation using basic hand tools. This installation was done to show the average home builder they can do this. The only specialized tool used was a mig welder. You can use a home hobbyist mig welder with nearly the same results. The key is to work in stages and not warp the sheet metal. Of course, if you don't feel up to it, we will gladly install it for you.

This one was done with a wire feed welder sold at Home Depot, just to show it can be done that way.
