    Advice Required to fit roof lamp (Lightforce with remote handle) to L200

    Dropped my car at my garage for my lightforce 170 with the remote handle to be fitted to the roof of my 04 reg L200 and the mechanic says the support bar runs down the middle and he would need to fit it off-centre which makes me nervous, anyone else had this problem on a L200 and did you find away around it? ....picture of it would be nice as proof he can do it! I reckon he is bluffing as it is slightly more complicated than he anticipated and is looking for me to give him an easy option .

    Easy option is mag mount

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Had a similar problem recently (support brace ), options are to slightly offset, or fit a roof bar.

    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

    The Hella is a totally different Lamp Taln, the Lightforce is a sandwich mount (note a lot larger hole must be cut )

    which allows no room to tighten the locking ring between the double channel support brace on the underside

    of the roof ( pull the interior light to see channel )
