You should have no problem finding something in the C10 Farkles Vendor Directory in the C10 Accessories forum.

Headlight, Harbor freight $5.99, xenon, 65w, one I am using for now.

Murph's has a headlight wiring harness, had it on my older C10, works great. NAPA has a 100w, but make SURE you get a better harness for build, the stock "may" melt on a 100w bulb. OR, go all the way with the dual lights from Murph's for $490..i think..Steve has em sand so do others,....

Burney,

Rifle and CeeBailey's are two considerations for replacement screens. check murph's site....

As far as headlight, BTDT....I would urge you to go to murph's site with all possible speed and order the dual-bulb conversion kit. No, it is not cheap, but I will tell you firsthand that there is NO comparison between it and the OEM setup. I can truly say that it is perhaps the finest modification I have done to my Concours in 18 years - even moreso than my Russell seat, and THAT's saying something!

In the interim, Osram Silverstar or Philips Vision+ bulbs are a far better alternative than standard H4. If you go with a larger bulb (e.g. 80/100 W), you should replace the standard bulb socket with a ceramic one (available at NAPA and the like).

But really.....get murph's dual-bulb kit. You owe it to yourself.
