Lights should fit...they just won't be as close to the mesh as his are unless you extend them out somehow.

I'd try to get them pretty close at least within a half inch.

yeah, here we go:





this is fibertop's mount from the bottom. he's running his grillcraft flush with the front. you'll have to use steel 'cause you'll have to bend it. get a 4 foot piece of 1/4" thick flatbar and some bolts from the hardware store. once it looks good and the lights are positioned where you want em, give er a couple of coats of paint and you're good to go!

Hopefully I can find some time to try this mounting method this weekend.

I just picked up some 1/8'' thick 2''x2'' steel angle iron. Wish they would've had some aluminum, I bought some extra drill bits to get through this stuff.

Talk about heavy duty, if I can get this to work the lights aren't going anywhere.

Thanks for the design Kevin!
