Early days... I've an 85 Silverado, bought in Dec 00 from original owner. So, My problem is, is that I've promised my little kids that I'd take them out 'Topless'....when the good weather hits (maybe). What I'd like to know...is....Obviously, sincee it's now 2002 is the top gonna be struck to the rubber seals? will I rip off these seals? If I do manage to actually get the top off will I need to replace the rubber seal? Also on the inside lip of the top (As you sit on the rear seat, there is a nice brite chrome strip, does this strip stay attached to the top? or does it remove and run along ther sides when the tops off? Am I gonna be left with a bad lkooking paint finish if I remove the top? I mean along the top edge of thefender lips etc? I'm wondweing if it's really worth the effort? but I promised my kids icecream 'topless'
