Patton -

Just weld a piece of angle iron to the inside bumper brackets under
the splash shield (with the top side of the L flush with the underside
of the splash shield) and drill a hole through it and the splash
shield to attach your driving lights.  First of all this is the way
most of the guys from the factory mounted them up to their personal
cars, and it has the added advantage of keeping the splash sheild
solid as a rock and not vibrating all over the place, plus I think
this mounting is the most attractive on a Healey.

You can ask your local welder to do the job, it'll probably cost you
around $100 or less for the work.

You definitely don't want a badge bar to mount the lights because they
vibrate all over the place... plus gets the lights too high up for my

You can see what the mounting looks like on my BJ8 here:
