Finally my Hella HID auxiliary light arrives tomorrow and I am looking forward to get that installed at the earliest. Does anyone here has any experience of fixing auxiliary lights on the standard bullbar of the Scorpio? I would like to install it on the top steel bar at the middle which has a flat top. I did check and there is no hole that can be used readily. Do I need to drill the holes? Can that be done locally or we need to take it to a lathe.



Also I need to do something to secure the auxiliary lamps. Keeping in mind that the lights are pretty expensive and I will not like to loose them, I am thinking of using the breakaway nuts which once tightened will break away from the head portion to make it permanent. I plan to use this on the outside of the normal nuts so this will also work as jam nuts and avoid loosening in the longer run.



Let me know what you all think about the same.



A link to check out the product is given below for reference.

I would not recommend drilling holes in the bull bar since water seepage that happens in the holes can very easily result in the corrosion of the bull bar. You could get clips fabricated at a lathe shop and use them along with the security fasteners to attach the lamps to your bull bar. Can you post a picture/url of the lights that are coming so that we get a clearer picture please?

Are you planning them to use for highbeams ? The bulbs are of 6000 k which is more bluish than white and would not travel a good distance. I'd prefer to have them for low beam/fog since they'd spread wide and may be upside down on the bullbar. I don't mean to discourage you but post on this in automotive lighting dedicated thread for gurus to chip in

After a long time I am posting some pics which I should have done long back. The lights are very bright and I have focused them between high and low beam. This makes highway driving in the night a joy and also helps to signal those who forgets to use the low beam. In city driving I hardly use this as the reflection from the car ahead is blinding to me.
