I mounted my lights about 1 1/2 feet back from the windshield. That way there's no spray on the hood at all. I made an aluminum cross bar that secures to the roll cage and holds the lights.

The decal way sounds good but where do you find a big sheet like that?

One of those places that stick advertising on cars may work out.
