We construct self-similar solutions of the Dafermos regularization of a system
of conservation laws near structurally stable Riemann solutions composed of Lax shocks and
rarefactions, with all waves possibly large. The construction requires blowing up a manifold
of gain-of-stability turning points in a geometric singular perturbation problem, as well as
a new exchange lemma to deal with the remaining hyperbolic directions.
