    Hi, I'm new got a 77 blazer you can check out here: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2438160/
    I really want to put a soft top like a tonneau cover that goes up over the cab on it
    kinda like this:

    But idealy i want to make it myself cause I'm cheap and broke and just kinda like doing stuff that way. Where could i get the material? a marine boating place? Is there anyone else thats done something like this? Or is there a place i could get these for pretty cheap (I had a hard enough time finding that one only to realize it was like $500)? basically all I'm going to use it for is when i park it at night or if it rains. But usally ill probably have the top off. So it doesnt matter if it looks really ghetto or anything.
