    Foxing Lamp Placement

    I have a 2003 Mitsubishi Warrior Pick Up, I was given a foxing lamp for it.

    What I'd like to know, who has one fitted?

    I am wanting to know the position to drill the roof without hitting the
    cross bar strengthing strip? I suspect I need to go off centre, but by how much?

    Many Thanks

    TJ
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    have you taken the head lining out for a look?

    How about the lightforce mount that uses suction cups and a bar to mount the lamp on the roof operated by your arm out of the window?
    Would save cutting holes in the roof

    The roof lining is one complete section, would rather hear from someone who has already done it, rather messing about and probably snapping the self locking pop rivets.

    Using a lamp with a window open is OK when it's warm, but for 50 weeks of the year, it's not, the attraction to doing it in November, with your windows up gets my vote.

    Pretty sure my old l200 was bang smack in the middle, unlike a Landrover no cross beam. Probably best to talk to a mechanic than listening to me, before you go wild with the black & decker!

    What lamp is it?

    Old bridge garage have done 100's, (Carr-bridge) 01479 841254. Dougie is a decent lad and will give advice on the phone.

    Thanks for that, I'll give them a bell through the week. No idea what the lamp is, my old man gave it to me, I need to try it first, if's it's pump, I'll be on the look out for another.

    Myself and a friend did mine early this year , i just drilled straight through the centre of roof also through the strengthening bar which runs back to front, but you are better taking lining down to check your no cutting interior lights cables, and that was a lightforce we fitted .
