Default Opinions on bullet headlights, please...?

I'm working on more ideas for my Cruiser, a retro/hearse look. I've posted up 3 mockups on cardomain for the ideas. Could I get opinions on if you like them, and/or which ones? http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2477248/5

Thanks much!

#1 makes it look like theres somthing missing or somthing there that shouldnt be...im a little fonder of #2 but if u plan on doing hids...if u dont put in projectors...i hope some1 smashes out the lights.

people that use hids without projectors piss me off..witch is y i still roll hallogen baby! cause i can find a pair of headlights cheap enough to cut up to make my own

I'd go with # 1 - with a little "hat" on top with the turn signals...

My vote's for #2: #1 seems like not enough, and #3 too much.

What are you doing about the tails? Hopefully you've already thought of this, but do you have something suitable/matching planned for the rear? (It's a pet peeve of mine, how the worst-looking cars --- Cruisers included! --- are caused by people who seem to just throw EVERYTHING at 'em, instead of thinking things out ahead of time and developing a coherent plan.)

# 2 and 3 are "COOL"!
You do have to have a turn signal of some kind.

I'm sorry I think your PT looks good as-is, those headlights are just a little strange looking.

Really like #3. They all look cool though. Oh and my grandmother thinks all Pts look like hearses.

Did the same thing with my panel.
I didnt like them... too small of lights,
My fix? I scored VW bug fenders for the natural shape and larger lights. Ill cut and graft them on and I bet it looks better..
heres the panel as it sits...
