Default New Member NC - First Corvette 1980

Hello,
First time Corvette owner, bought a 1980 Black on Black running, but needs a lot of work - I am grateful to anyone who can help me out with technical / mechanical questions - been watching a lot of Youtube videos to help me with repairs.

Can someone point me to or send me photos of where the headlight actuator relays are supposed to mount? I am rebuilding my headlights (replaced actuators and vacuum lines) but the one simple step I am missing is where the actuator relays mount to on the car (they are currently dangling by the vacuum lines in front of the radiator). I have been under the car with a flashlight bent over the front bumper looking and I do not see anywhere they could possibly mount to- no holes or brackets.. nothing- HELP ME PLEASE!

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on your C3!
My best suggestion is to ask your question in the C3 section of the forum. Lots of great members there with much C3 knowledge who probably have photos right at hand to show you what you're looking for. https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...s-1968-1982-5/
Best wishes with your restoration efforts.
