Headlights and a one piece fiberglass front end?

I am going to be putting a one piece front end on my Lemans. This is/(will be at least) going to be a street driven car, so I need headlights, turn signals, etc.

I can't decide if it would be better to mount the headlights to the front end and make the harness so I can disconnect it, or to fab up some sort of mounts for the headlights so they sit just behind the front end and stay on the car when the front end is removed. Almost forgot something, the plan is for the front end to tilt but be removable if needed.

The turn signals and parking lights will be attached to the front end, that will be pretty simple as far as mounting them goes since there is enough material on it to bolt them on.
Headlights, however, I am not sure how I would attach them directly to the front end, and I am also not sure how well they would work if not attached there. Yes, I am confused.
Any thoughts are appreciated.
