    I'm new to the forum and don't have enough posts to make a post in the Classifieds section; Sorry!
    Looking for members selling exterior parts to fix up this neglected C30.
    I've attached a photo. I'm looking for a grille, driver-side headlight bezel/trim, and any hardware to mount the headlight.
    Less critically, I'm looking for a nice seatcover that you might find in an old Arizona/New Mexico truck. Any suggestions?

    Welcome Alex. I had good luck with LMC Truck. They offer a premium GM licensed grill and headlight buckets. IMG_20200921_204005.jpg

    Thanks for the reply! I've looked at LMC truck before, but I'm not familiar enough with this supplier to know what to choose in the vehicle selector dropdown to ensure I get the right parts. I see C10 and C20 in the dropdown, but no C30.

    Use the C20 drop down. The grilles are common.

    Request a printed catalog-they're free from LMC. Digital are only as good as the person assigning the noun to the part!

    Plus they got pictures (just like PB)! ;) :anitoof:

    I miss when LMC had the actual catalog posted online and you could go page by page... all without the stupid pop-up that tells you that it doesn't fit your selected vehicle.

    Grille looks in decent shape to me. Unless you’re restoring the truck of something.
    Parts are readily available at most any of the old truck parts houses. And all those parts are the same regardless of model. (Provided you get the single headlight buckets. Trim and grille are same )

    Welcome from Austria. Go for Gm licensed parts, they are better quality than the non licensed stuff.

    @aigram,

    Welcome to the forum from Louisiana. What does the rest of the truck look like. It looks like it has some kind of a flatbed thing on the back. It's not a dump bed is it? I see the square hole in the end of the bed behind the cab back window.
