    For a '74 Blazer.....which top do you guys recomend? When not in use, do they drop down and store out of the way? Does this take up all the rear area behind the seat? Do they all use snaps to hold the edges down? Anything thing else......?

    I've only seen one, looked like a A.M. set up. Did you check the last post called "soft tops..." basicly go to a boat shop.

    Thanks for the site info, but neither one has any info on a '73-'75 top. I'm looking for someone with first hand experience to answer my questions if possible. Thanks.

    Opps sorry! I was thinking you wanted a site that sells them...ask Eduardo Lamothe. (I can't remember his user name though- doh [​IMG] !) on this site. He has a 74 with a soft top. His email is margonga@ctcreuna.cl. He has one and would probably tell you what you need to know.....

    &lt;edited part&gt; By the way ORD sells them (G131020 ’73 to ’75 Blazer $515) for the year you want. Why not ask Stephen? I am sure he'd know about it! [​IMG]<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1>Edited by ChevyCaGal on 04/01/01 08:21 PM (server time).</FONT></P>

    I have a '75 K5 with a Bestop soft top. I LOVE IT!! I can either unsnap the sides and roll them up or fold it down and stow it in the back. Spends most of its time rolled up. It does require drilling holes to install the snaps above the windshield and on the tailgate. The kit comes with rails to mount on the sides. Anything else......oh yea, the part number is 51316.

    I dont have first hand experience with full tops, but Kaylines are a great product and they do make a top for your app and run about $475..
