    He is waiting to get the jeep back from a local shop and will cut the hole. As you can see, we were authorized to continue with the hijack. LOL

    Harbor Freight hole saw set.

    Had Temp. Gauge strapped to the column.

    2” hole. Needed very little filing to fit 2 1/16” gauge. Used a little cutting oil.

    Only problem is the lights on the first two come on with headlights and the new one comes on with the switch.

    Have You ever tried Blair Rotobroach cutters , they do A great job . You can hook Your light up to the dimmer switch
    then the light will come on when you turn on the lights.
