My wagon has a 3rd brake light above the license plate.

Thanks Bill.
I believe that particular 3rd brake light was from a Volvo V-60 wagon...if I recall correctly.
I used to have two complete rear deflector setups. I ended up selling them both to members on this site.

If you get around to it can you send me a picture of the unit itself, mounted. I was cruising ebay to see if i can match one for cheap.

I'll see what I can do about getting you a picture of the unit itself.

Little off topic but I may be in the market for some NON deflector hinges. If you have any. My wagon is going faster all the time and I have been wondering if that fin/deflector could cause unwanted lift at High speeds in the quarter mile.

Perhaps you guys could work out some sort of trade. I honestly don't think the deflector would be that critical at high speed. It's actually designed to help clear off the rear hatch glass.
You could experiment running with the deflector and without to see if there's any difference in ET or top speed.

Funny story about those deflectors: my wife had a Liberty around 2007, and I thought the reflector would be a nice feature. Got one at the dealer, installed it by the instructions, and it looked good. BUT, that sumbich only did anything at EXACTLY 55 mph! Any other speed the air was going somewhere else, but not through the deflector.
