Attaching lights to front bumper

Hi guys, I just recently bought some fog lights i want to put on my front bumper. How have you attached them besides drilling holes? The guy at Advance Auto told me to get some clamps and clamp them on. Any other suggestions?

Ok thanks, I'll look into it. Also called my local fastenal and he said to look up split ring hangers, they look promising.

I would have to suggest the Axia small light mount. Perfect no drill light mounting solution.

Light tabs a cheap, order a pair on line, and take them down to your local welding shop and pay the guy a few bucks cash to weld em on for you. A little spray paint touchup, and your golden!

Anything else, Im afraid won't be to secure, and the lights will bounce or loose alignment easily. A bouncing light is really hard on the eyes when night riding.

Oh sorry,I bought some fog light mounts for the front bumper that were made by Hella.

Oh dang, it didn't realize this was you again. Looks like you are in the same stage of modifying that I was about a year ago!
