Mounting Hella 4000 on Roll Cage Above Window

I'm about to mount 4 Hella 4000 lights to the the roll cage, above the window on the existing mounts. I got the bolts, M7 - 1.00 x 25, but I'm concerned they may be too small. The bolts that came with the H4 lights are much bigger. Interested to know if those with Hella 4000s have drilled out the hole/nut to accommidate the Hella bolt or have went with the M7.

I would drill them out... I would also take the extra time and run the wires inside the roll bar.

I have got the same lights on top. I Would use the same bolt that the rover roll bar uses and a washer, not a grade hardware. The lights are supper strong and you can break the bolt off with out damageing the lights to bad. If you supersize the bolts, the lighs will proble break the mounts. I have rolled my rover 2 differenet times and the lights are still good. Each time some of the bolts broke or the lens cracked , the light became very loose because the mounts bent. But the housing are still good and so is the cage.
