Here's what I did :
Pulled off the plastic piece between the fam shroud and radiator support and lined up my lights where I wanted them

Then I drilled the holes for the bolts

Wired them up

And finished product

Theres other ways of doing it but with the lights I bought this was the easiest way for me

I bought the bolt style LEDs from www.superbrightleds.com and attached them to L brackets I had in our shed.

^^^ Same as mine.... mounted them the same too. The pics are from a cell phone so they aren't the best but the lights are bright and all light up evenly. I got the 10mm amber colored bolt led's from superbrightleds.com

I think the bolt lights are better. They are smaller and fit right in the honeycomb grille

Can you take a pict of one light and the mount? I like the idea of the bolt lights myself. Just wondering how it looks is all. Thanks
