Top hatch search

Postby Wiper [OP] » April 6th 2011, 8:51am

Having a Astro Van from 1995 with “Dutch doors” at the rear.

I’M looking for the top hatch in black – I haven't found one in Denmark - maybe one in here can point me to one?

Does anyone in here have such a item laying around..? (and what's the price? - including shipping to Denmark, Europe)

Looking forward to hear from you guys.

I'm not much help finding the door on your side of the pond. You can use http://www.car-part.com to locate one in the US. Most of the yards will ship, not sure about overseas though.

Hi, you can try it here its a big junkyard in Holland for USA cars http://www.vandenbergusacars.com/
They send all over Europe i believe. I know he is not the cheapest one but some parts are hard to find on this side of the pound.
Good luck and if you have any questions just send me a PM.

Hi

The prices are way to expensives here in Europe..... :confused: - got an offer here in Denmark for $580 (that's 3000 DKK) ...from Netherland €600 (That's 4000 DKK)

And in US the prices are only between $50-$250 according to http://www.car-part.com... (I've sent some request to variuos)

The best solution would be, if somebody (from the US) could be my "deputy" and locate one - (with wiper, heated tinted/private glass - prefer the color black - of course rust free) - and ship it to an address in 23445 Virginia beach.

Anyone game?

Haven't seen many black vans, but plenty of hatches. I'll see what the local yards have.

Yard I'm heading to today has a couple good hatches. They want $80 per. I'd have to figure out a way to push the door pins out though.
