Nice writeup. God I wish it was that easy to do the 89 to 99 swap.
I like the GMC style better too, but it's a bit more work. You will have to find GMC turn signal lenses, or trim up the Chevy ones to try and make them fit, they don't interchange well. You will also have to find the filler panels that go directly under the signal lenses, and have them color matched and painted to your vans color. This is the main reason I chose to use the Chevy style grill, that and it was only $20 Your best bet is to find a complete GMC style grill with all pieces, lenses and hardware attached, then just have the filler panels painted, good luck!lowstro said:Thanks for that write up, I plan on doing the same but with a Safari set up. I like the Safari front set up and grill. I think is more aggressive than my Astro front.
Yep, everything bolts right up, exactly the same, just be sure to get the black plastic backing plates that attach to the back of the composite headlights, and don't forget the bolts too!chevyguybc said:so the grill and everything bolted onto your factory sealed beam radiator support
wow the wiring is way too easy!
thanks again! I will definatly be doing this
This is the thread, just go back a page. Everything will bolt right up if you have all the components regardless if it's a conversion van, cargo van or passenger van. The only mod is the filler panel for Safari front ends, and the actual headlight wiring/ground connection.atlantapainter said:hello I have a 98 cargo van with a similar light set up could mine be just as easy?

Great write up. I realize this is an old post. The photos are not shown. Is there a way for me to see the entire post with photos?
I am in the process of doing this conversion on my 05 Astro Cargo.
