Good luck on the tailblazer. I hear the next Indiana Jones film, sees the eponymous Dr Jones on a worldwide mission of derring-do, to track down the last known example of said tailblazer!! :D

Hate to break it to you OP, but the likelihood of you getting that swap is about the same as finding an honest politician - tailblazers in good nick are 3 figures all by themselves.

If I never said hello before, welcome though :)

Lighten up bud, :wink: its just a bit of well meaned humour! Tailblazers are a forum hot topic....some people hate them and some people (like me) covet them and are prepared to pay a fortune but they are obsolete and now fetch silly prices......

Wind deflectors show up on ebay from time to time...
