I sat the bar on the hood and bumper tonight to get ideas. I'll need to cut up the grill to mount the light to the grill which isn't a deal breaker per se. Mounting to the bumper cover looks pretty good and wouldn't protrude past the very front of the car. I'm wondering if I stuff pipe insulation under the light if it would negate the extra drag of being mounted out front.
The stands ride perfectly to the outside of the washer nozzles on the hood, they hold the light about 1.5" above the mounting surface, I'm worried the bar might stick up too much above the hood and am thinking of making shorter brackets if I decide on the hood mount.
