    I have a 1975 blazer with a soft top i bought for it at carlisle last year. i paid 50 bucks for it and all it was missing was the rear bow and had never been used. I made a rear bow out of some tubeing and it worked well however the top sags between the bows alittle . the top came with hand written instructions, and i have know idea what company it was made by. i need info on possible makers of the top and info on what rear bow might work on this application. thanks

    It's most likely a Kayline I am betting and they have gone out of business (along with Skyler).... only other people who make tops that I can think of are Canback and Bestop. I'd look in the auto section of your phone book. I found a top shop here in my town. Bet you have one too who can help you out. You can also try a boat shop maybe they can custom make you something as well. Good luck! [​IMG]

    <font color=blue>You can still get parts from Kayline, just not whole tops.</font color=blue>

    Could be a besttop, besttop puts a tag that says besttop next to one of the windows.
    Good luck,
