thanks for the info, they look great in the mag but the only thing I was wondering is that the lis. mount plate looks kinda small, how does that work, do you have to drill holes in plate etc.

You can get a brace that bolts to the light... and then has holes that line up with your plate from JP... just flat stock with holes at different spots... I run a repop with LED in it for brightness.. You could prolly make your own cheap...

i used the regular sparto on my cb. it didnt have holes for the plate, kinda sucked, you could drill some i guess. i would think mine was the same size as the extended lens.
