How did you mount the light bar?

Picked up a set of nifty 35w sealed beam aux lights for the front the other day. Was on the fence between mounting down off my highway pegs or up under the nose. I see there is a bar available the fits into place. How do you attach the thing. I popped out the pop rivets that I figured were the holes it uses but the frame is not threaded. Staring through the air vent I couldn't see a good way to get a finger in there or wrench to hold a nut. Any one have the bar with the secret?

Thanks

Cheers from Indianapolis, Daryl

I found some clips like the ones pictured at an ACE hardware, they slipped over the bracket that the plastic rivets went through and cannot be seen when the plastic is back in place.

good luck
