Outback Limited:...I bought new fog lights 2000

I bought new fog lights...

I bought new fog lights for my 2000 Subaru Outback. However, in installing them, I sheared the bolt off on the driver's side (there was only one left) and sheared one of the two off on the passenger side. So now I have the foglight on the passenger side attached with one bolt and the driver's side is just resting on the ground. I bought a new front bumper cover as well, and it has not been installed yet. However, I have taken off the original. My question for you is whether I should have a shop tack weld the lights, or can I fix the issue with some QuikSteel (steel-reinforced epoxy. Also, can I install the bumper cover and do the fog lights later, or do you recommend I do them before installing the bumper cover?
