Default G3 1756 questions

Trying to get a cheap light set up. Looking into getting the tuff led lights on amazon and rigging something up. Does anyone have any pictures of a cheap set up on a boat similar to mine?

The 1756 is a fine rig for floundering with. Unfortunately most have an elevated platform build that is approximately 6" wider than the bow. This allows more room and the lights to be recessed.

Cheap and boats never go together.
But here goes.
Sheet of Plywood
SS Sheet Metal Screws
Some Wire
Cut plywood to fit front of boat, mount lights to plywood screw plywood to boat run wires to battery.
That's about as cheap as it gets unless you use clamp on lights then you don't need the plywood or the screws

I was thinking about a couple 100 bucks. But I could squeeze a little more out if I needed to
