I broke mine the other day and cant seem to find a replacement at whitney or lmc ....any ideas?
Okay this will be no help but... Id not bother to look a lot unless I were going for restoration, id just find something that I need from a yard and grab that too. They're not that special, really now that I think on it... Nothing comes to mind, but as long as you replace them both there are tons of things you could cut to make look okay. Just my thought. If I think of something, ill send you mine ;-)
I had good luck matching my '83 maroon straps up with a late 70's or 80's Caprice model.
The Caprice straps I grabbed had metal reinforcing them (nice!) but were a hair longer than the truck ones. No matter, it just gives you a bit more space to get your hand around.
The site cheyennepickup.com has them. They're about $10 each. The little chrome end covers are about $6 each. That's if you need the same kind I just bought. (84k5 silverado package) they'll send you a free catalog. These aren't too badly priced, and they're exact replacements. They've got about every trim piece you can immagine, but they usually charge you at least your first born for most of the stuff.
Chevy house $5 each
Oh, the little covers are about $4 at O'Reilly's and maybe $2 at the dealer...dealer not always that bad.
Chevy house ??
Think Chevy Duty has them too...
wanted section here /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif or a junk yard. I called around to some junk yards and found some. Grey are the hardest to find.
