I know what you mean, same here when it comes to having nice things and knowing it's all proper and right. It would be nice if they would re-paint your whole door.

Negatory soldier, the third brake light is federally mandated on all US vehicles as of around 1993.

Are they older than mid 90's? If your vehicle didn't originally come with one, then you're fine. It's just that in the mid 90's the government said new vehicles shall have high mount third brake light.

Casper, if you enjoy police attention, go right ahead. It's just a matter of whether or not the cop that sees it knows the law. If you have state inspections, lack of the light could also be reason to fail. I'm not an expert on vehicle laws, but there's a reason third brake lights aren't an option on vehicles.

HOLY GOD!!!! That is wayyyy too much work, I work at a body shop dude, they quoted you that much because they probably didn't want to do it, if they had the paint matched good enough you would only have to paint the door and the fender and clear into the back of the cab, no need to pull the bed. Just get some paint thinner, not stripper and a clean rag and those marks should come right off....

Many federal mandates on what a vehicle requires apply to the manufacturer and dealership only and is not passed to the owner.

A good shop with the right technology should be able to repair and repaint the problem areas (not resort to do the whole side because they can't do paint matching) for MUCH less.

Doesn't look like you need any parts changed..
