KC Slim Lites

I went to have my side windows tinted darker yesterday afternoon and my buddy at the local tint shop made me a pretty sweet deal on a set of Long Range KC Slim Lites. Iíve already got some light tabs that Iíve been holding on to for quite some time, so Iím excited to finally get to use them.

My question is, is there any type of security that I can use to keep someone from unbolting the lights from the tabs? I donít think Iíll have a problem where I live, but I was just curious if anyone had any bright ideas other then tack welding them to the tabs.

mount them inside the grille. it looks better imo, plus they're safe.

I didn't even read it. I guess they won't work.

Wouldn't changing the bulbs be a PITA? And cleaning them might be a little tricky with a billet grille lol I love how they look in there. I looked up the thread you were talking about....and will be considering that as an option for sure. I'm just not sure how much output I'd get with a billet grille. Might block too much?
