No place to buy new. You'll have to get them from a junk yard or a member here who will part with some.

I may be mistaken, but I think the headlight doors and aluminum surround on an '82 were very similar to those on '86-'89.  It was the center grille that was the main difference.  Perhaps one of the members that has done a grille swap can help clarify that.  If it would work, the headlight doors for '86 to '89 are still available @ rockauto.com.

As far as I know, 81-90 headlight doors will bolt right up.  The differences lie in the color/painting.  Some years had the plastic immediately around the headlight painted black, others were 'argent' or silver.  As long as you replace them in pairs, shouldn't be a problem.  I think the 81-85 were the black ones.  I had to swap both of them on my 82 as the ones I found in the junkyard were the silver ones and the ones on my 82 were black.

The rock auto ones have the option of black w/ silver (argent) or black & bright (chrome).  As long as they match the color scheme of the '82 grille (silver or bright) and are replaced in pairs, it should work.

I was able to buy new ones for my 85. I got them for 15.95 plus shipping, from Partsgeek.com. It only took 3 days from time of order to the package at my door. Their part# is CH2513122. Hope that helps.

Can't really tell what is what. Need more info on your parts and more info on applications.

I'd definitely go OEM (new or used) instead of aftermarket on these when possible.  The finish on OEM parts will last a lot longer.

81-85 are different than 86-90. Both have chrome or argent options
First is 86-90. They tie into the grill and the second is 81-85 and is seperated by the grill shell

Hmm, don't seem to remember that issue swapping between my 87 and 83.  But, I don't have either of those anymore so I can't confirm.
