Alright guys, I know these things are harder to find than a politician that isn't corrupt, and folks want a small fortune for the crusty ones when you do find them. So I've been quietly working on reproducing some. I got the 3D designs done, and am ready to talk to some places about making a production run.

I'm short on funds at the moment thanks to the economy, fuel prices, me doing the service dog thing, and just life in general. With that said though, I should be able to at least get a small batch made within the next 6 to 8 months hopefully, so keep your eyes open if you or someone you know might be interested. Planning on having some made in a printable Grey and hopefully some in chrome as well.

Here's a little teaser pic of what I have so far.

Very kool that you have access to some sort of digital imaging gear…..here’s a thought (if it is do-able)…..take one of the 84-96 tail light lenses….make a digital image and see if you can come up with pair that looks like the pre-84 lenses……now THAT would be pretty kool also……I would love to have a pair on my 91……a set of chrome trim rings would be like icing on the cake……..


Recently purchased (10-2021) a 1991 Chevy G-20 “Shorty”. Past vans are a 1976 Chevy G-10 (purchased new in 1976 & sold in 1995). A 1978 Chevy G-20 Shorty purchased in 2010 and sold in 2015.
