To quad or not to quad
« on: February 1, 2020, 01:05:23 pm »
While hunting for 79/80 rad support for my RC I accidently bought 4 of them and lets not get in to how. One's at the body shop soon to be on my RC, one's pretty ratty and the other 2 are pretty nice.

While wondering what to do about this "problem" I had an idea - replace the somewhat ratty one in my 77 plow truck. I have a couple lower valences, a few quad grilles and a couple sets of headlight buckets but I'm kinda short on amber turn signals.

Thoughts? Opinions?

    There was a guy in Mexico selling the amber or clear turn signals on Ebay. They are great quality, just that mexico's postal system takes over a month. I have purchased 4 sets of the amber lights from him. That would be my preference, the quad headlights would be my second choice.


    Links do not work anymore, will have to search for his  ebay store.

    I love the quads!

    But I love the 78 amber's too.

    Yeah I'd be torn also.
    I'd rather push a DODGE than drive a chevy or a ford!!!!!!

    Either way is not the wrong way.  Both look good in each their own specs.  I am all for the quad though!
