    LMC shows they have some, last time i was at yard in springfield there was a pretty good 1980 square light truck in there, im sure crushed and gone my now though, and it wasnt evne that rusty or beat up for around here and was complete truck, probably was abandoned, ive seen alot of trucks even back in 67-72 years they have drug in because wer eleft abandoned and had to be picked up,. tghere was a really super nice 71 or 72 C20 pickup they had once that was abandoend, compelte, everthing, had 350 with original style p/s and power brakes and everything, i think it even had a tilting column too, i dunno whyh somone would abandon something like that, are rare around here,


    ppl are crazy

    if anything i might be able to call yard and see if they have anything rigght now for 80 square ?

    I have a pair. I was going to use them, but I might sell them. I'll try and dig them up and get some pics.

    All the aftermarket ones are plastic, unless someone knows otherwise. Mountainexplorer, send me some pictures of yours. Thanks Slider

    I know where a set is, I got the blinker housings out of them. PM me if you don't find any and I could get them for you. They are metal and not in bad shape at all.

    I thought the pair I had was in good shape, but they arent /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif I took a pic of the best one anyway. What price range do you want to stay within for a good set? I know a guy that has a local 4x4 shop/parts yard, and he might have some.

    A set in good shape, no delamination in the pot metal I would pay 40 to 50 bucks. I can get my set rechromed for 75.00 but need a set to use while mine are being rechromed and of course an extra set would be nice
