    Umm, Wraenking, a BIKINI top is not a full soft top -- it just covers the front passenger seats. They really only then apply to the pre-'76 full convertible trucks.

    Crappy pic, but it's all I could find right off.

    To my knowledge, nobody makes a premade one for K5's of any year, which sucks. When I bought my truck (a '74) the PO gave me a top which he said was for a Ramcharger (the old full-vert ones) and it fits okay; snaps onto the windshield and goes over the factory rollbar.

    I ended up making a bar to bolt up to the factory hardtop locations with snaps on it for the thing to go onto.

    I think your best bet is gonna be a local boat shop and have one custom made (they sometimes call them "bimini tops"); there might have been somebody doing that here as a group deal within the last year or so, for the first gens.

    I had one made for my old 72 at a local boat shop, cost me about $250. Worked pretty good.
