    I got a light bar from a friend last night, it has no mounting hardware only the arms that seem to bolt on somewhere above the door i just have no clue where or how to do it. I need some ideas. Those of you who have them on can you take close up pics for me? Thanks a lot, Mike

    I have pics of the one I HAD at home. I moved to grille lights. Anyway the model I had was a KC. It had L-brackets with rubber coating that went from side of bar bracket to around the drip rail to hold it up. I will get a pic later, unless someone beats me to it. C'moe may have a pic, he has the bar now. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Anyone here ever tried to mount a windshield light bar (like from a jeep)on a K5. Since I'm installing a soft top, it would be the only way other than on the bumper.

    A piece of cheap stock bend and drill some holes and he'll be set after a trip down to a hardware store for some bolts /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
