I just checked my fixtures for signs of melting and didn't find much. The plastic directly above the brake light bulb may have been a bit warped, but I also didn't check it before I installed the brighter lamps. There was no melting on the lens.

I spend a lot of time with my foot on the brake now (probably 45 minutes continuously coming out of DC some days) so I'm comfortable declaring this a safe modification
