    Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The Hardtop I had...had the clear side windows...
    so I felt like I was in a FISH Bowl!!! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
    So there is a BIG difference between the two.
    I just have the blind-spot with the inside spare tire. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I have too many hobbies. I am an Amateur Radio Operator and I help out with emergency communications in case of some type of disaster, tornados, hurricanes, and something like the space shuttle disaster.. The pole is for mounting a HF vertical to the vehicle so that I can transmit. Kinda of like the Army does on their vehicles, I just didn't want to drill a hole in the side of the vehicle, so I fabricated my own antenna mount. I take everything like that off while it is my shop at school.

    The bumper and tire carrier was built by the students in my Agriculture Mechanics class. I bought the top from Off-Camber.. The top is a heaavy duty vinyl. I went through a barb wire fence back in January during a Tennessee 8" snow fall and it didn't even tear. I guess I was lucky

    DUH! I didnt realize those were the same ones /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Is it the same price with or without the corner windows?

    How long does it take to put the top up/down?
    How does it stow away when down?
    Thx

    Does any one know of a place that makes the "fastback" style of soft top for 74-91 blazers? I've seen those around and really like the looks of it
