    Does anyone know a vendor that sells a "bikini" top for first generation Blazers? I am in the process of cutting the top off of my 79 and adding a cage and lights. Need a short top for it.

    Well first Gen is 69-72. Second Gen is 73-91. Roof line on the first gen is not the same as the 73 up. Course that doesn't matter because nothing is made for either.
    I have proposed to Specialty top to make one but as of yet they have not put anything out.
    You can make one for pretty cheap. I used a canvas tarp from Northern tool and a snap kit and made a top that worked for a while. A few other members have made tops for other vehicles work. The widest windshield frame is on the Toyota FJ40. J.C. Whitney sell a top for about $35 and a track for another $25. I don't know of anybody that has tried that top yet so not sure it would work.
