Mounting PIAA's on bumper

Hey guys. The girlfriend just got me a set of PIAA 540's with the extreme white bulb. Iv decided to mount them into my front bumper. Im thinking of using some brackets and plates to create a platform to mount them on. Does anyone have any photos of this? or tips on how to do this properly.

Thanks and Merry Christmas
Steve

I just used some 6'' L brackets and cut them to the size I needed. Then drilled the holes large enough to clear the bolts. There are 2 rectangular pieces with bolts welded to them in the bottom valence on each side of the tag holder.

thanks for all the help guys. I used your advice and fabbed something up today. Lights are mounted and it actually looks pretty clean...pics soon. The material I used probably isnt thick enough and has more flex than i want, It will be easy tho to redo it later with thicker steel
