    I’ve had a 1980 C10 for a few months and I just discovered this forum. I’m located in Miami and I’m excited to own such a cool truck. All I’ve done so far is change the power steering pump and replace spark plugs/wires and oil, but I’m hoping to get it on the road soon. I’m currently trying to figure out an issue with the front lights, but I think it may be a burnt wire coming from the starter. Anyway, I’m glad to be part of the family!

    The previous owner didn’t think about possibly unscrewing the screws before yanking off the grille :emotions34: And yeah I need to fix that frown and that cracked park light. Does anyone know where else to find those for an 80’s truck besides LMC?

    Welcome from Ocala Fl I don't think that is a 1980 front end . The 1980 is the last year of that hood and fender but the first year of the square head light and the head light bezel and turn signal light bezel is all one piece . some one may have changed it to a 79 or older grille.

    Iirc, the lower trim levels on the '80 were still available with the round lights.
