The landing light holder was included as a “supplement” to the kit. We cut the pre-molded hole and bonded the lamp holder into the fuselage with structural adhesive while we were at the factory for the Head Start program. This lamp kit included a set of springs designed to hold the bulb in and a plexiglass lens which we will use. We’ve elected, howver, to go with a XeVision Xenon landing light, which provides much better lighting with a lower amp draw and longer life than a conventional bulb. This bulb comes with a controller unit that we had to mount on the fuselage wall, but the bulb is a direct replacement for the standard aviation bulb.  Prior to first flight, but after priming, the lens is installed with silicone caulk.
