Installing my euros in 123 ???

I seem to need some fasteners on the inside of the light assembly. The holes are f ing huge! I am reluctant to use 3/8" bolts. Anybody have the hot set up?

The holes are large so the housings can be adjusted up, down, and sideways. A clip mounts on the crossmember to which the lights mount. I don't remember if it is the same one used by the USA lights, but just a long sheet metal screw with a washer is what you should use - no 3/8 bolts.
