kooldubs,  I also have a set of these, never been 100% happy with the fit so if you come up with anything that does not involve drilling the van body work please do share it!  I have so far 'self-tappered' them to the lamp clusters and added velcro and plastic angle brakets to try and hold the inner ends, it was hopeless!  I/you/we need to be able to take the lamp clusters off to change bulbs etc. of course, this is what has so far defeated me.
 
JasonK suggested double sided sticky pads, but I thought 'messy if/when you need to get the lamp clusters off'.
 
Good luck with it!

Not sure what these look like or what trouble you are having, can you upload some photos? (They have to be small, i shrank my photos by texting them to myself! ) the reason why i ask is i recently found a plastic glue which is excellent, so i wondered if it would help?
I'll think of something good to write here one day .....

I have used a small (m3) countersunk screw and a self-locking nut and hot glue.
My blenders come off with the lights.

Bollocks to it all!!
