Re: Obs cad mount sotlights

the hardest part is going to be cutting the door. measure once, check it measure again. cut it on the small side, you can always cut a bigger hole.

if you have air tools pick up a de-burring bit for a air die grinder

one of these

Re: Obs cad mount sotlights

You dont have to cut the door. Back in the day when I worked for the fire dept we had 90's cab and chassis' and the hole was drilled next to the windshield not through the door. There are some trim/bezels needed as well to hold it in place that specific to the truck.

I have a spotlight on the passenger and drivers side doors. It's dark right now, but I can take pics tomorrow and post them.

Former PenDOT truck. Only thing drilled was the "A" pillar and trim. No mods on windshield trim or door
