	Good on you for doing that.  Installation of 3rd brake light brings somewhat greater peace of mind to driver of the MGB, and we like to think it helps to keep our cars on the road.
	I did as you, with generic LED unit, some years ago. Now that we have more and better choices, a larger one may take its place.
	A previous DPO replaced fenders and did not install the side lamps.  While I have never thought they were things of beauty, a benefit to having them, on front at least, is that they can be wired into turn signal flashers.

Somewhat easy installation because of an article in the latest Tech Issue of MG Driver (Jan/Feb) by Simon Dix of the St Louis MG club.  The article explains how he mounted a used Volvo V70 third brake light.  It's very bright which should help safety wise.  People these days are used to seeing a higher up third brake light.  This one is mounted right on the hatch frame at the top of the glass with double sticky tape.  MGs are relatively small vehicles today, even compared to a Honda Civic.  When you step on the brakes, you need to be seen.  It's getting dark here in San Bernardino,  I think I'll take the MG on a food run.
