For me part of the problem is the sides are parallel. It just makes the thing look square. Try a CAD model with the top 30mm or so wider than the bottom and I think you'll like the result.

Love that bike Brad.

This one started as a normal 8 x 10 inch plate that was trimmed and then heated and bent to get a 3d shape.

What kind of lights are there, Teazer?

Cheap spot lights from Autozone or Pep Bois.  I'd think that there are better smaller lights available now, but they were available and fairly easy to fabricate mounts onto the shells of the OEM headlamp Brackets.
