    Hi... welcome to CK5... please fill out your profile! [​IMG]

    There are several people who have soft tops on this site... also several places to get them...

    Specialty Top Co.
    Skyler Tops

    You can also check with boat shops they can custom make you a top as well as checking for places in your town who could make you one in the phone book.....

    I live in SW minnesota.......Im planning on buying a 1977 k-5 thius tuesday I will redo my profile when I get it and learn more about it.....Ive always wanted a blazer because hands down they are the badass rig to do anything in. Well I was just wondering about the top since I didnt care for the one thats on it now....It looks bad its got some waves in it like a person tried sanding it down or something......So they will keep the heat in?......what holds it to your fenders?....is it like one of those softtop bed covers on a truck they just snap in place or what???

    You really should figure out what soft top you want and then email the company or post a message and ask members who own one what they think. Personally, (I live in MN too [​IMG] ) I wouldn't want to deal w/ a soft top in the winter. Leaks and then heat would be major concerns I'd check with. If you do decide to run a soft top in the winter I'd look into the one Steve Fox has... the can-back is spendy but looks nice and thick... very sturdy. I tend to think you'll probably get what you pay for with a soft top so a good one won't come cheap. Check out the review of the Can-back here http://coloradok5.com/gallery/captcrunch
