I am thinking about getting the 3rd brake light from Acura TL (the one mounted on the rear roof panel) and finding a way to install it to work in my SI, all so that I could remove my rear spoiler but won't be driving illegally without the 3rd brake light.

So then I need to run the brake light wiring through the rear pillar to the rear roof liner so I can hook up the connection. But I don't see any clips on the roof liners like I do for other cars. None for the rear pillar trim either.

Does anyone have a clue about how they could be temporarily removed without damage? Suggestions of how to approach this would be great.

I also gotta go check what work needs to be done to make the electrical connection work, maybe go ask the parts guys. Hopefully I can reuse the original connection. It would be dope as heck if I could make this idea work...

Thanks in advance :)
