Finally got the bracket situation figured out for mounting. Now I'm working on the wiring and deciding if I should bring the two lights closer together (I think I will). Closer together would look better I think and also give them some more mounting room ... and no cutting of the grill parts.

Here they are on the first test fit.

In the second pic you can see the drain pan under the transmission. Just installed a Ford Motorsport Chrome Pan on there and I CANNOT get that damn drain plug to stop leaking. It is a curse. I think if I tighten it any further it will strip out....

What kind of sealing washer came with the drain plug?
Fords new replacements have a rubber O ring built into them and are the best for sealing

I like the light install. Maybe you need to use some teflon tape to seal the leak, or a little RTV. Of course, this means all fluid needs to come out.

The lights look great there. I can't tell from the photo but for information, to be most effective a Driving light should be mounted no lower that 16" and no higher than 42"
centerline of the lamp to the ground and a Fog no lower that 12" and no higher that 30"

Nylon, yeah not too good with trans fluid. You might try a different washer possibly a fiber type

I like the Driving lamps alot. I am considering mounting a couple of small ones in my fron Spoiler.

I Think the Nylon Washer is the problem. Use some teflon tape and the rubber washer you mentioned and it should be fine.

good Luck!
