    Yes kayline did get bought out and the new owners are making tops...but no one has ever made a bikini top that I know of. I made my own to hold me over till I got a soft top (I now have a Bestop but havn't put it on yet). I used 1" x 1/8" aluminum to make a frame that attached to where the hardtop bolted and put some snaps on it. It left a bit of a gap at the front but the sun visors blocked most of it...good luck.

    PS I have heard of some people using a bikini for a jeep.

    Lets get someone to make us a bikini top! Or if one of us could come up with a good way to connect the thing, I could get my aunt who is a upholsterer to make the rest... If anyone wants to we could start a business...

    So does anyone know what jeep bikini you can adapt to fit on the blazer?

    I made one the first year I had my '72 - canvas from the fabric shop - double thickness - wrapped around a 1/4"x1" aluminum strap bent to fit the mounting holes with grommets lines up with the bolts on the corners and grommets and bungee cords for the back - Covered the driver, but not enough for wet weather --- I have emailable pics - but they are just of the truck with in on - not how it was made -- last summer I tried a cut top (previously known as a full sized Bestop) and used the snaps on the front - but never got the back to work/fit right - I’m back to full sized top - Kayline - bought it here used - rolled back for topless summer cruising and wet weather protection --
