broke flashlight but have an idea for spotlight

a have about 4 of these that the heads work on but the tailcaps and such dont work for various reason. blah blah blah. but what i want to do is find a way to mount the zoomie heads like a spotlight on my truck. idk where yet but then wire it to a switch and a powersource so that its like a spotlight. so my idea/question is. is this possible? mind you i’m just tinkering here if its been done i cant find it anywhere, so what are y’alls thoughts

I’m in kinda the same boat with one such exact light lying around and no tailcap. I gave the old one away to a friend with the same light which fell apart. Now, I’m seeking…something.

Hi Zach.  Dchomak built a couple nice light bars for his lawn mower.  Post 31 of this thread shows the finished (or close to finished) bars.  The one using 4 P60 type flashlight heads is similar to what you are working with.  Maybe there are some ideas you can borrow from those builds.
