Default Attaching lights to a rc4wd rollbar

I'm thinking of putting two old-school off road lights on the Hilux. I have the rc4wd metal roll bar, but it doesn't have attaching points for lights. Since the plate they provide for locating the holes in the bed is sufficiently thick, I was thinking of cutting two tabs out of it and mounting them to the roll bar.
But how should I go about doing this? Braise, solder or weld? I could probably make a mini arc welder out of spare wire and a length of mig flux wire. (I think it's too small to try to do with a regular mig welder). Or I can dust off my old skills and try to braise it.

What do you all think?

I'd go with something like this: Axial light set

This way you'll have lots of options and they should just clamp on the bar. Surely some one else here on the board knows if the Axial set fits on the RC4WD bar.

I have that parts tree from my scx10, but there's no mounts, only light buckets and grilles.

Oops, that's not funny. I saw that in the G6 build Matt's doing right now, he didn't mention it but you can see in the pics they (the light buckets) are mounted to the roll bar with separate mounts which are from the axial set I think. Anyone care to confirm?

I went looking and found this:

Next up was the install some form of rock light. I wanted these to be visible on the truck and not hidden under the body, so I decided to mount these up on the roll bars. As luck would have it, one of the parts trees in the G6 kit had what looked like clamps that were specifically designed for this purpose, so I decided to give it a try. Turns out that they worked pretty well.
But maybe small cable clamps would work too.
