Default New headlights!!! for my bondoville **pics***

I just ordered a pair of BMW 5-series headlights off ebay for 75 beans.
Thay look like:

The bodylines are somewhat similar but definatley not too close.
I'm gonna mold these suckers in. With some help of course.
There'* gonna be some cutting, possibly some welding, fiberglass, and of course BONDO!! involved.

What do you think??

I probably won't clear the corners for a while, unless the lense just comes right off.

I'll buy a disposeable if i can't put my hands on a digi cam. If your thinking about doing this too, i hope you got friends that really know body work!!! lol. I know a bit but i'll def. be hitting my one friend up.
