How to mount Grill Lights with stock 99-04 grill

I recently came across a set of Whelen lin4 led emergency lights, they were actually off my old truck then a friend used them for a while and now i have them back. Im looking to install these on my 03 f350, when i pulled the grill off today to try and figure out some way of mounting them I was stumped... There really isn't much as far as mounting options go with that stock grill and header pannel. Im sure im not the first one to install lights like this on one of our trucks, i Just cant figure out how to go about mounting them...

here is a you tube video showing where im trying to mount them.. im going for the horizontally mounted ones.

thanks for any ideas

How about making an "L" bracket, screwing it into the top of the grill where you'd like them then you can mount the lights to the part of the bracket that hangs down?

Here's a detailed CAD drawing

If you can I would use this as an opportunity to upgrade to an 05 front end. The newer front end makes it very simple to mount lights behind the grille. There is tons of room behind the grille. You can mount lights directly to the header panel as well.

Or maybe see if you can find an excursion grille or one of those billet style.
