I'll try to post some spotted differences of the trucks and some tips/links for parts, (probably too expensive to ship anyway)


Link to swedish salvage site with flares

Wow, I can actually get on the site at work!

Thanks for the link. I'm looking mainly for the rear door flares...checking it out now.

OMG, Those are 4-door fender flares are GM parts made in Canada! Did you see the Canadian flag sticker on the inside of one of them? Just seeing the inside of them to see how they attached is in itself instructive.

Will they ship to the US?

I noticed the 'Canada' stamp, too.
50-80 bucks per is not bad, either. I wonder what shipping would/will cost...

I love how they were made in canada, but I cant find a single set of GM 4 door flares here... so not fair...

I'm curious on shipping prices as well... if it's not too bad, I would get a set just to have GM ones... until then, I'm happy with my chopped up custom zr2 flares lol... I have yet to see another blazer like mine around here. Just the way I like it

Perhaps we could pool an order for some 4dr rear fender flares and have them shipped to one of us in the US/Canada from where we can distribute them. I'd be willing to fork out a few extra bucks, on top of any purchase and shipping costs, to reimburse the person who would do this for us!

Well, that escalated quickly! 😵
Heres another link, it's possible to search the database fos cars that's not yet scrapped.

https://en.bildelsbasen.se/?link=list&searchmode=1&vc1=120&pc1=107&vc[0]=120109100&vcx=2562&pc[0]=107100100

Here in sweden we are generally quite good speeking english, so if your interested, just send a mail to the junkyard in question and ask if they ship overseas!
I seem to remember that www.bildelarosby.se has been importing cars from us earlier, so they should be able to arrange shipping.. Btw "bil" is just swedish for car, "delar" is swedish for parts, and "Osby" is a city in the south) 😉

As you can see in the link above, AAA bildemontering (junkyard) has 2 4d blazers, so it would be easy to ship together, and if there isn't any other solution, i could try (i really really dont have time) to sort some shipping via a mate that ships cars from the US!

I am so down!

Sweden is closer than Indonesia, as well.
If only I knew some of my relatives in Denmark...drats.

I will shoot them an email...see what they say.
