1982 grille/headlights/light bezel. What are my options?!

what are the options to change on a 1981-82 c10 front end?( the grille/headlights/bezels)?
it has the single square headlights and fake plastic parts under them and i think its hidious.turn signals in bumper.

what can i do? i do not want to swap front clips to the old 70's just because this sheet metal is so prestine condition.

You don't have to change the whole front clip, you can change the radiator support and get the stacked dual head lights or the side by side burb head lights and grill and keep your hood and fenders.

I have '91 Suburban grill's in both of mine,scientificly proven to be best look'n grill for our truck's !
you will have to get the core support and wire'n harness from the donor, but it's an easy swap .

I found a grille from a 90 chevy van, and an air chin from the local Pick N Pull...
You could go that way... you have lots of possibilites for a decent and cheap face lift...got both parts for $50

I kinda like that bumper you have but the single headlights could use some help. I'd probably go for the stacked headlight setup and leave the signals in the bumper. Kinda reminds me of the 67-72
