I need both bezels. It seems the 1980 is a single year item. Maybe I can have mine rechromed??
Yeah. The 81 bezels won't fit an 80 grill.Jack,
There are vendors in Hemmings that do plastic rechroming. Although I've never used them for exterior parts. My guess is expensive and you'll probably be delighted with the results.
I think repros are relatively cheap. Probably not as weather resistant as a rechrome.
I found a good used set of '81 h/l bezels and grill and put those on my '80, it's a direct swap.
78 and 80 are different, Malibu and El Camino are the same. If he has a 1980 passenger side headlight bezel in decent shape, I'm interested.I was approached last week by a local guy with Malibus. He has fenders and front ends for a 78 and 80 for sale. I don't know if these bezels are interchangeable myself. Let me know and I can contact him. May see him at the weekly cruise tomorrow if the tropical storm allows.
Hey Jack, "neatcollectables" on Ebay has new LH bezels for $29.99. They are new metal reproductions rather than plastic and have very minor imperfections. (I got one and couldn't find the imperfection) .It was delivered in three days.QUOTE]
Thanks. Just ordered one.
