Headlights: does this kind exist?

I am looking for headlights for a build I am in the middle of but I can't find what I am after at all. I am looking for 7in round that physically bolt to a flat surface. Think like the LED trailer lights that mount with 3 screws. The idea is to just cut a hole, rather than deal with the headlamp bucket. If anyone knows if these exist, please tell me.

Thanks.

the buckets i bought to convert my disco are old skool 7" round baja lights for a bug. but they need at least some recess for the plug and back of the bucket, but they came in one integral unit that i was able to fasten straight to the radiator core support with sheetrock screws.

hack, but the screws secure into the metal nicely and they are hidden by the rest of the hard ware. i paid $20 for the pair of buckets. they are adjustable as well, being that they are complete self contained units.

i get the impression that you are asking for something that is flat on the back like the stick ups adverstised on tv for your closet, but with a headlight in it.

for a d90? hope this helps some.

Thanks Aaron,

Not flat on the back. Think just like a normal light but with a ring arond the front that you can bolt to a flat panel so you don't need a bucket. Like flush mounted trailer brakes. I'll check out the bug ones too.

yeah, the ones pic'ed above have that "flat ring" with holes in it to bolt to lets say a defender radiator support.

it sounds like what i put in is what you want. they are pretty cheap. and i mounted hella lights in them with the cartridge style bulbs.

i need to look for my old receipt...you are going to kill me but they were the last ones on the shelf at the race shop i bought them from and they were covered with cobwebs, but they looked EXACTLY like the ones i posted the above link to.
the flat ring area with the mounting holes are behind the blingy chrome ring.
i just threw that part away. it was unnecessary anyway.

Replaces damaged or corroded flush-mount head-lamp assembly on trucks, buses, RVs, etc. Ideal when custom mounting headlights in fiberglass fenders or Baja kits. Mounts easily on any flat surface. Fully adjustable bucket accepts any 7"-diam. head lamp (not included).

direct cut an paste from the add.

Okay, cool. I saw the chrome and dismissed it.
