im welding up a light bar for my bug, but not exactly sure best way to mount it to the roof. i see the store bought ones mount on the rain rails but i just dont see that being very strong. It also rains here a lot in tennessee so if i go drilling holes in the roof to bolt it in it would have to completely water proof. any input?

My light bar is redone so that it mounts to the same holes as the visor. It cleans the roof up a bit.

i decided to go with a straight bar across the top with two 7 inch lights and two 5 inch lights. o00o <--- like that kinda. then welded to vercial pipes on each end and welded flat pieces on the bottom of the vert pipes to bolt into the roof. i cut up an old caution cone (redneck i know) and made some gaskets with it. and will also silicone the piss out of it. sounds confusing but pics to come in the near future.
