    Damn... That grill isn't quite the style I'm looking for...

    I'm looking for one that is an exact match to my truck:

    The rust on that core support look pretty hairy... is it just surface or can you poke through it?

    If you're still looking for one of these grilles, I may have one on either an '83 or '84 K30 (can never remember which year it is) but will have to wait til Fri. to check it out. Its dark right now.

    Shoot me a PM so I don't forget about this.

    Hey Tom you wouldn't happen to have a radiator core support on one of your parts trucks for the 80's style front with single headlights would you?

    And yes still looking for a grill. Preferably in great shape...

    If you've got a company called "Certi-Fit" near you, or can find them on the web, contact them.

    Had to spend a bit of time with a razor blade to get the stock bowtie to fit perfect, but it was worth it, since the grill was something like $25 brand new, and that was the ONLY problem with it.

    No doubt a GM grill is going to be better quality, but if it's used, as everyone knows, they tend to get brittle.

    I have a radiator support off this same K30 the grille is on and I'm parting it out.

    I will check today after work on the condition of it. I know it doesn't have any rust on it.

    And yes, its the single headlight kind like you asked.
