    Got these from a very nice guy that I bought doors off..
    I dunno how old they are but they had round eyes and I had to have them
    He threw them in with the doors!
    They’re brown and that doesn’t match the trucks color scheme but what the hell I like em

    I've got a set of those in dark red. They came with my '84 C10, I think they are from the late 80's?

    I don't think they are factory, I bought a set like these in the early 90's from some auto parts store.

    Sweet sweet
    I grabbed some doors off an 84 Not sure exactly if and when I’m going to do power to them but I like options and this seemed like a good time to switch doors ( before painting)
    Are there any reasons to go
    To the newer style vent windows?
    Or just rebuild these 84 versions

    Drilled the holes in the door / cab for the jamb flex conduit
    Going to use the ones from the gmt400 trucks
    They’re abundant in the pick n jerk yards
    When I get them stuck in there I’ll update pics
    I figure if I go mirrors with blinkers or speakers in the door better to do it now
