    Or if you have a roll bar or cage you can use a soft top from a CJ7 like I did...

    I bought some marine grade canvas, a a small steel strap, and some gromets and plan on doing my own! A friend of mine has a scout and it seems to be roughly the same size as my 75 (windshield wise). Bestop makes a bikini for scouts, haven't tried it yet, so you may want to try and get measurements. There was a guy on here somwhere that said his was made for the dodge ramcharger, but you'd have to do a little looking around to find who makes them for the ramcharger! Oh, they don't make them for blazers...suppose they figure there wasn't enough years to justify making them.:confused:

    i will look at the tag on the top when i get home to see if it says who made it and part number. When i bought the blazer it came with it. It attached to the front windshield with snaps.

    by the way mine is a 75 also. those are pics before i got it back on the road. maybe 1 year ago.

    Before I bought the full soft top for my '73, I stopped by a local upholstery shop. He said he'd make a really nice one for $125.00.

    Another way you can go is from Bestop. Give their customer service a call and ask to verify, but I bought mine many years ago and they said that the widest bikini top they make is for the Land Cruiser. It fits the Blazer pretty good. Part Number 52540. Toll Free: (800) 845-3567

    Here is the cheapest Scout bikini i can find. I'm debating, i've got all the stuff to do mine, and some of the sewing done, i'm just concerned it won't look like i want to to, so maybe i'll invest in one! Anyhow, here, it's $69, i didn't think to terribly bad!

    Full vert, the channel where the seal is is 53". Overall width of the windshield frame at the top is 57"...

    Sounds like the Scout top would work well for a 73-75 anyways.
