swapping headlight bezels

I have a 79 short bed with the round headlights with the signal light attached. I like the look of the 78 and older headlight bezel with the signal below it. Do I have to change out the whole core support or is there a filler piece to go around the signal?

Re: swapping headlight bezels

I thought all you had to do was change bezels?

Re: swapping headlight bezels

Well I went to a local junk yard today and scored 2 bezels, lower trim and the bumper filler for about $22! Bezels are in great shape, just hit them with some 4 ought gauge steel pads and washed em up. I also pulled my tube grille off and hit it with some steel wool as well. All in all im pretty happy!

Re: swapping headlight bezels

Looks sweet, theres stainless trim for the signal you can add if you like also. It matches whats on your side markers.
