it doesn't look like the light can be centred properly. There is a little rib there that is narrower than the light itself. It would bother me too much if it wasn't centred properly.

I want to install the LED in the center of the dash by the windshield. Right next to the auto light sensor. The problem I'm having is finding something small enough to drill a hole with. I brought home a right hand 90 degree drill but it's still to big to get that close to the windshield.
