brake/tail lights compatiblity - dimples - vert

Just wondering if hatch tail lights (the corner brake lights) are the same as convertible ones.

I also am wondering if it is normal for the red plastic lenses to have a dimple in them? They seem to be really hot, maybe the deformed? the bulb is practically touching at the indent/dimple.

Yahh the auto part store ones are fine, The great thing about the LEd is Very Low current draw meaning No Heat. No more Melted shit like Grounds, Just fix it up and let it eat. I wish LeDs were available back when c900s were still in Vogue. Alot of customers would have appreciated the reliability of the Led compared to the Failures of the Light bulb, HEAT etc. Heres a hint Get Red Led's For the red parts of the housing "Not White" You want to use the color of the Led that its intended to Light through Red to red...amber to amber so on..
