    Making a full convertable out of an \'89 Jimmy

    How would I go about making my Jimmy totally topless and still retain winter drivability? I think I could do it... just the sealing the windows and stuff would be hard. Any ideas?

    Have been stuck (once) as of 8/12/00

    Find a hard top from a 73, 74, or 75.

    If you want too still use a hard top then you will have too get the top half of the window frame from a 73-75 blazer.I did this and it wasn't too bad.You will probably have too have a body shop finish the body where you cut the roof off the back.Also just cut your current doors and get the plates and rubbers some where.It's alot of work but it looks nice on those years of blazers.

    You need to check out the Project Vehicles on this site. There was a guy who took a Half top and made it full convertible. Just put on a soft top and you're done.
