    Cut the hole just under the size of the light and then put the grommet in and pop in the light. Bingo done.

    The oval is 2 1/2 inches wide and 6 3/4 inches long. Take a 2 1/2 inch hole saw and cut two holes with the centers being 4 1/4 inches apart, and connect the two outside most edges with sawsall or hack saw or jig saw and tada, you have an oval hole that will fit those lights.

    well I remembered that my small car trailer has 6" oval lights on it, so I knocked one out put a chunk of cardboard behind it marked it out with a sharpy.

    then cut it out and traced it on to my bumper. got one installed and wired gonna work on the other one in a few then I'll post a pic.
