Source for Column/Pillar Light Fixture

We have a big job where we have to install a long stone seat walls with columns/pillars every 10 ft. or so. On top of each column will be a PEAKED cap, and they want a post light fixture on top of that, similar to the one in the photo below.

I can find plenty of fixtures that work on a FLAT cap. But I can't find anything that would work on a peaked cap like that. Anyone have a source for those?

I know they do! I looked through all of them online tonight. But I cannot find a based would make them connect to a peaked cap like that anywhere! I looked through all their post lights and all their accessories too. If you know of a base that would fit onto a peaked cap like that, please give me a stock number. I'd LOVE to be able to use a Kichler fixture.

Can you buy the peaked cap that is for lighting? Usually they sell them with a flat spot on top and the hole for the wires like in this link- http://nantucketpavers.com/pier-and-wall-caps/

No, the peaked caps we're using come to a point. Like the one below. They have other pier caps available locally but they don't look as nice. All the hardscape guys and stone masons around here use this variety. And they only come in totally flat or peaked.

Grind the top flat the exact size of the light base.
