    As I sit here @ 3:00 in the morning, typing a final, I realized I really can't wait till summer. I have plans of wheeling, fishing, baseball, and working. Hopefully, I can get enough $$$ to make my Blazer not stock. MMMMM... 6" lift...37" shoes...just a few weeks away!!!
    BTW after removing the top, do the weatherstips need to be replaced, or can they be reused if still in good condition?

    K-5- because size DOES matter!

    Summer, wheelin, Oh yah. I agree except I'm in Florida right now blazing in the sun [​IMG]. Fishing? I just went 25 miles off shore and caught over 100lbs of fish, The biggest was a 35lb tuna (nice).
    As for your top, I used the same gasket without a problem or leak so I don't think you with have one. Heading back to Colorado tomorrow...............[​IMG].....[​IMG]

    I was told if you put them in a bucket of soapy water
    after you take the seals off that it will help from keeping them from drying out and ripping the only thing that sucks about it is you have to wipe them off when you take them out of the bucket so if you have any tears be careful not to rip them more

    HEY Fords!!! how many flushes does it
    take to get rid of you

    I just took the top off last weekend and the seals were so rotted that they were all tore up. 140 for new seals "at cost" from GM and around 120 from LMC. Make sure you have the money set aside just in case!
