    The stock 78 im looking at has a rear roll bar. anyone habve any photos of that this looks like with the top off? I kind of wanted ther blazer to resemble a truck with top off, not a painters truck. Also if i cut the top half off, added on just behind the b pillar, and welded from the rear one to the front one would that be strong at all?

    Not really yet. I was windering what other's looked like with the top off, I don't think the 80's models had this option.

    I took one of the stock ones, flipped it around, added about 8 inches to the front of it, and bolted it right behind the b-pillar
