    Has anyone ever built or seen a blazer with a full top thats been narrowed in the front and the rear( kind of like cyber fire's blazer)? I want to be able to keep the back seat and keep everyone fully covered plus make it a daily driver. I like having my blazer fully inclosed because of rain and theft not to mention noise. My blazer never sees a trailer so it might be nice for those long road trips. Just a thought??? :confused:

    Narrowing the fiberglass top seems like a serious PITA.

    At some point you could consider an S-10 Blazer body swap. Could go to four doors that way, too.

    I agree but I like having the full size cab because I am a big guy (6'5'' 250lbs) plus I want to be able to use alot of the parts I all ready have. I would'nt mind shorting the top so that it drops right behind the back seat though.

    I'd worry about getting the rear glass in the tailgate cut to fit properly.

    plexiglass

    but that would be the long way. easiest and most effective would be to shorten the top as well as narrow it, then use plexi to make the back window for it.

    If I shortened the top and narrowed the sides just past where the top ends then I could keep the same glass but I would have to make a new piece for the bottom ( getting rid of the tail gate).

    or using the tailgate to create your back wall. that might look kind of interesting.

    If I ever get around to narrowing up my Blazer I am going to attemt the top as well. For a rig that sees snow that would be the sheawt!
