Hi Everyone, 

 

I know Minispares sells spotlight brackets for a roundnose Mini that bolt behind the grille and are used to attach spotlights, but I've not seen some for a Clubman. Locally, when they fitted spotlights from the factory or dealerships, they simply drilled holes in the front bumper... I would rather not do this as it doesn't seem like a good idea.

 

I have seen a bracket which I think was used to mount 4 spotlights to the rally cars:

It looks like it mounts to the underrider bolts and the numberplate bolts. I was wondering if anyone has used something like this with the bumpers still fitted, and if they had dimensions for the bracket and a picture of how it looked? I think you can get them new from the UK, but shipping a large steel bar would be exorbitantly expensive and I figure it could be made? 

 

Alternatively, does anyone else have any ideas of how to mount spotlights to a Clubman without drilling holes in the bumpers? 

 

Here is a picture I found of it fitted but without the bumpers:

Thanks, 

 

Vinay

One guy local to me used to have this setup. It looks like a pretty simple bent piece of flat bar, you could add a long piece connecting both sides if you wanted more lamps?

And it looks like they mount to the underrider mount points too. I think it's the simplest option. I'll measure up the distances and drill and bend some steel bar.
