    Does anyone know where I can find info on restoring/repairing my hardtop? Are they repairable?

    Hello Zang,

    Its funny that you ask I was thinking the same thing. The tops are made of fiberglass so when I did a search on the web I had better luck looking for boat repair. Also I have been thinking of useing one of POR-15s products for the top that Greg72 gave to me(thanks Greg). It needs just a little attention. Por-15 has two products that intrest me for this repair the two part puddy also this new one witch ist the por-15 paint but comes in a tube and is more like a paste. If you have the service manual for your truck there is a section that covers some repair. Hope this helps.

    Lico

    Hey guys,

    If you do a seach of the archives for "Fiberglass Top Repairs"....you should find a thread that I started asking about this topic. 1896Blazer (Chris) gave me a TON of information about the process and what types of materials to use.....

    Check it out. It's good reference material for you.

    ps. I still haven't started fixing mine....it's too cold to pull the top off yet.

    I've got some resin from Tap Plastics that I used on my boat. It did a great job of sealing the leaks from holes left by an old roof rack.
