Help with '89 Firebird 3rd Brake Light wiring!

Hey all!

I have an '89 Firebird, which was all done up to look like KITT by its previous owners.

From what I understand, its a FORMULA. It was converted to an older style hatch, with a small spoiler and the 3rd brake light is mounted at the top of the hatch, and of course, its not connected to anything.

My question is, where was the 3rd brake on a stock '89 formula, and where might I be able to find the wiring, so I can reconnect my "new" 3rd brake light?

under the spoiler center connects through hatch connector plate I would delete it and run a red weather proof led strip on the back edge of the spoiler, help the Aero and look cool.
