Measure the depth of hole from edge of hole to bottom. Or just get a toothpick and mark the depth onit
Go to the local hardware store and find a bushing that the bolt fits into but the outside is smalller than the fender hole. Choose the bushing length that is longer than the recessed fender hole is deep.
The base of the light mount will use the bushing as a mounting surface.
Lowe's has a great selection of nylon bushings in all kinds of interesting sizes.
Ace Hardware has some really nice chrome bushings, pricey, but you only need 2, they also have nylon. Be sure to pick up a couple of longer metric bolts while you're there, Ace has stainless bolts with socket cap or button heads.
