    Looking for a new top for my \'72

    Does anyone have any idea where to get another hard top (in good condition) for a 72 blazer? What about the soft tops, how are they as far as being weather tight? I live in wasington so its a real concern for me.Thanks for any info!

    I have a double walled hard top for sale. It is in very good condition. the top could use some fresh paint and new rubber.

    Re: Looking for a new top for my \'72

    I'm looking too if there are any others forsale close by me. Located north of Denver CO. I've finally had it with my hardtop, it's cracked at the midseam and leaks like a MF. The previous owner cut in a crankup roof vent and there isn't enough roof jack on the planet to keep is sealed tight. I'm not looking for a primo one, my hatch is actually decent. It's pretty pathetic when I have to wrap cargo in a tarp with the top on to keep it dry.
    As a side note, any word from Kayline's buyer or Can-Back on softtop progress?

    Jeff.

    I didn't hear that they were up and running after the purchase. Looks like they're still here in Denver. '69-'72 Fastrac top is $600 +S/H direct from Specialty Top Co. Kayline's website linked to the new one.

    Re: Looking for a new top for my \'72

    I have 2 1972 Jimmy's and thinking about possibly getting rid of one of my hard tops but I want to explore storing the 2 in my garage, as I know they are worth some money! ;-) But everything has a price!

    If it ain't broke, break it!

    My wife is telling me to get rid of it... but ... I don't want to have to go through what you are right now trying to find one should I want one. Not to mention my vehicle is not the most practical in the cold weather (e.g.; ice) I will try to find a way to store it first! sorry

    If it ain't broke, break it!

    Re: Looking for a new top for my \'72

    Hi, I am in Southern Cal. I guess that is a long way from you. I don't have any pics of the top at this time but if you are still interested I will get some.
    Thanks,
    Dan
