    I found a first gen blazer at Ira's Sales & Service in Madras, OR last week. Here are a couple pics of it.

    The truck is nearly rust free except for the one side of the windshield pillar. I am not sure if they are willing to ship parts or not but if not I am willing to pull parts and ship them next time I am out there (but dont really know when that would be?).

I have been looking for the little plastic pieces on the top of the doors for a long while now... cant seem to find them. could you tell if the doors were straight? might want both of the whole darn things... lets call them trail spares /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I will check on those doors. I believe they were fairly straight.

    thats some good news there /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif straight blazer doors are the last thing I need before a paint job... It would be great to have a blazer that was one color again.

    Thanks Kenny!

    I dont think the grill was still there on that one. There were a couple other pickups with some good grill parts. Try calling the yard and ask them to check for you. If they have it I can pull and ship it.
