    I am looking for new Parking/Turn Signal Lenses. I have an 80 K5 Silverado. They are different on this model than any other one. They are the square headlights, which means the parking lights are different from the rest of this year with roung head lights. LMC has them for $43!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is crazy. I know they are hard to get because they are 1 year only but $43!!!!!!!!!!!! for a piece or plastic????????????? If anyone knows any good secret parts places, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Planet Salvage....I found a junk yard around me and I didn't even know it was there!!!! They search for your part for you! The junkyard that I found could almost build me a new K5 with all the stuff they had there!!!

    There is a guy here that does nothing but salvage on K5's and GM trucks, 73-91. You could probably build a K5 with 1 ton drivetrain, big block, color of your choice and options of your choice just from his parts. If you want I'll check with him and see if he has your parking lenses.
    Canadian $ so the exchange works nicely in your favor.
    Let me know.

    that would be great. The sooner you find out the better. I could finally get my vehicle on the road AND OFF IT.

    Thanks

    80 one year only? Though that 79 used the same turn signals and just the bezel and head light bucket were different. I know the grill and other trim peices are the same. BigJBear has a 80. you might ask him. I'll have to take a good look at his truck next time I see him.
