    I am looking at buying a 1990 blazer to make my daily driver. I want to know if anybody has used a hardtop for the conversion. I don't want to use a soft top.

    Talk to Yeild to me and MTPockets. Both have done this conversion with soft tops. The biggest problem is the full convertable had "Rocker Boxes" this is a double floor to get the strenght back to suport the firewall so your doors will line up. With a 77up (76 still had rocker boxes wven though they had hard tops) the floor changed and will not be strong enough to keep from folding without the roof. You will have to install a full roll cage and tie it into the windsheild header to regain the strenth.
