the lights are actually a very big choice for a number of reasons, first you need to decide on style to go with what is in your mind of the finished cars look, then size as you have to make sure they meet the iva measurements in from the outside (although he never put a ruler near mine) then black of chrome again an aesthetic but it ties in with what YOU want the finished look to be.
I bought chrome 7" ones very happy until they started rusting (they weren't cheap !!!!) then trolling the internet I found 7" stainless ones in the USA shipped for less than the cost of 1 of the chrome ones I already had the light units so just bought the shells, but then I did that origionally to !!
I know that's not much help but google image will let you see how different lights change the apperance
