    Did anyone notice the white 72 Blazer on the cover of the June issue of 4-Wheel & Off-Road? The article says the soft top was custom made by Can-Back . . . looks pretty nice, too bad it indicates they still aren't going to offer a top for our years. :(

    Don't get me started on those suckers.
    I spearheaded a group buy from them for our trucks.They strung me along for about a year with emails saying "we're just fitting a 1st gen now" and "you should see something in the next 4-6 months".

    I finally went there(in L.A.) and spoke with the head honcho who said "no...we having and will not have anything for that year chevy".
    And the guy who I had been corresponding with had been fired.

    Well thanks for wasting my time!

    I'd still buy a top from them though,if they'd ever make one :grin:

    that top looks good, the material they use is made close to me, maybe I seed to start sewing :haha: :haha:

    ps, look at page 54, top pic, looks like he stacked a bunch of thick plate steel to get lift in the front springs :thinking: :thinking:
    those spring packs have alot of springs too...........



    other than that, nice blazer :D :D

    Kinda looks like a zero rate type block and a thick shim.
