    Hello everyone! I've been waiting to join this website for about a year now and I've finally found the Blazer of my dreams, a 1973 Cheyenne Blazer. So now I finally have an excuse to join. It's now sitting in my garage awaiting the Ohio winter to pass and spring to arrive.

    I am looking for ideas for easy removal and reinstall of the fiberglass top within my garage. I'm thinking a good pulley system may be the way to go (just hoist it up and drive out from underneath it).

    I thought about getting a soft top for it but there is no way I'm drilling into the rust-free body of this truck, it's too nice. And I like the way the fiberglass top looks anyway.

    Wow, another new member with an awesome rig!!!! Thanks for supporting the best 4x4 site on the Net, my friend. :bow: :bow: :bow:

    As mentioned above, the search tool is a good option. You might also want to post up your question in the 69-72 forum and see if any of the 1st Gen guys have any suggestions.

    I have a boat winch and pulley system hooked up in my carport. I usually use some of the ratcheting tie downs to attach the top to the hook...
