    I drilled out the spot welds around the windshield frame on the very top of the cab and left the support under the sheet metal. I then took a windshield frame from a '73-75 and drilled out the spot welds around the very top of it. Also drill out the inner support on the 73-75. Then take the two pieces off the 73-75 windshield frame and weld it to your other blaze. Or you could cut the two at the same spot and weld the 73-75 frame to your existing Blaze. I did it to my '87 and it looks great. You also have to cut your doors down and get factory caps from a 73-73 blaze and fill in where the full-cab was. I hope this helps you, I hope to have a picture of my blaze up real soon.
