why not!


I ran two zetlights along side 2 multichip LED's


some will run on the same controller as one another, but if they are separate then go for it :)

The sol won't run of the director  but I do have the controller for it.Drilling the bolts will be the hardest  part.

Drilling the bolts might be really hard if the screws are steel and the body is aluminium? It'd be like trying to drill a nail out of a cake.  lol

As for the light, it'll be fine just try to match the intensity visually a bit. Some go without lights for several days when their lights break. I did with the R420r when they were going back for the warranty repair. Had two, and lived with just one for about a week.
