Basically, tap two wires off the existing 3rd brake power, and run each new wire to the trunk/hatch-mount tail lights. Strip the end of that wire and insert into the unused hole in the harness-side connector. What I then did was fold the stripped wire in half to bulk it up. Then connect back onto the tail light bulb socket as usual. Test. If everything works, you can squirt some hot glue or silicone into the back end of the connector (the side you put the wire through) just to help hold it in place (though I didn't bother).

Yes you do. All the 6's do. Each & every one of them.
@DisplacedMainah its easy to do on the sedan. Ive done it on 2 sedans. Took maybe 20 mins.
