    I say to my buddy "I saw a girl wearing half a bikini."

    He says, "Which half?"

    I say "The left!" /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    More seriously, I inherited a bikini top when I bought my '74 [​IMG]
    which the PO said was off a Ramcharger -- the old kind with full convertible tops.

    I ended up making a steel bracket to snap it onto as I want to start patching some of the holes in the sheetmetal. Here are a few pix, some taken for other reasons, which show what the truck looks like with the top. The front just snaps onto the bracket I made, which bolts onto the factory hardtop connectors on the windshield frame, and the rear just bungees down onto wherever I can snap it. Sometimes that's the rear seat or sometimes I put a 1/4" eye bolt into one of the bedside hardtop locations.

    The third pic is without doors when I did the quick-connect conversion to the hinges; on the 73-80's there's a bolt right there which is ideal to mount mirrors on, as you can sort of see.
