Icon5 Lighting Bracket

Hey guys I need to find a way to install my bumper lights into aftermarket bumper it doesn't have already made brackets. Was thinking about screwing into reinforment bar and kinda having it hang down a little bit behind the bumper but visible throughout the holes, but it would take quite a bit of work. Or since i am not planning on removing them would it be possible to use like JB Welder glue and glue it to theback side of bumper behind hole? or if anyone else has a idea let me kno..because i kinda wanna try both but not sure if i should glue or rebolt.

Plus-Glue quick and easy strong hold.
flaw-attachted to bumper so if something happens, can't get off easily.

Plus- Mounting to reinforment-not part of bumper, bolts will never have a chance to disolve.
Flaw-Very time consuming, drilling and practice on finding right fit to show through could be problem.

By bumper lights I guess you mean your licence plate lights (rear bumper?)

If so there are many posibilities, You may be able to dig out the original mount in your factory bumper and attach that into the new bumper with measuring and marking the holes and drill then attach with hardware bolts and nuts. Yes time consumming but in the end nice finished piece. Or you can buy these plastic LED lights that have peel and stick tape on them, they look cheap only hanging with tape, (ex. if you take your car to a no touch high pressure car wash) those things will come flying off in due time.

Wasn't real clear on which bumper you are working with but I would say you have a fiberglass kit and you don't have the regular factory holes to put your turn signals and such. Well do you know anybody that can do bodywork (fiberglass?) You could get them to make you a mold to hold your lights and get them to shave them in for you. Usually those kits need to have some minor prep work done before they are painted. You know alot of car stereo installation places now do alot of fiberglass work and I bet you they might be able to hook you up.
