    OK, I am rebuilding my '77 K5 and we have decided to use a tailgate from a '76 1/2 ton PU and create a canvas closure for the fiberglass top with zippers. (odd at how the pick-up tail gate will fit right in - chevy even has the holes for the hinges in place.)The canvas "door" will have a clear section of a bowtie in it and will fit into the channel where the weatherstripping would be for the glass. Has anybody tried this or a similar retrofit?
