If you want to start a project like this, you'll have to be in it for the long haul.

For a simple headlight change, I had to modify the whole front end of my car including the hood.

You'll have to move enough material to ''blend'' everything in.

As you can see pugs has a lot more shaping experiance than I but like I said you'll develop the talent as you need it so If I were you I'd start with the easier stuff like taillights and go from there....it took two years before I could get to reshaping my hood the hard part was duplicating the half you just did...

Grafting is a lot easier to get started.
Heres a set of tailights I grafted onto my 48...I simply cut the whole assembly out of the doner car and welded it into mine
Check out some of the tailights some of the guys grafted on they're pretty cool...
