Windshield light mounts???

Any of you guys/gals made your own windshield light mounts? If so please post some pics. I have a few ideas rattlin' 'round upstairs but looking for more ideas. Thanks in advance.

Hella 500's bolt right on with no bracket. Best part is, with no bracket they fit super close to the windshield and don't touch the antenae at all. I don't know if this would work with other lights.

Just remove the lower bolt of the windshield frame and put it throught the base of the light. I cut a mouse pad to fit between the paint and the light.

I worked a couple of hours and BOOM I had enough cash to buy the KC mounting brackets which have worked great.

So I guess in the Ricardian sense of roundabout production and competitive advantage I made my own brackets
