    Got the call from the local (well, 30 miles away) steel shop today. The Blazer goes in a week from today for a 6 point cage. ALSO, this weekend, the steel half cab goes bye-bye. I'm scared but I like it! Of course the weather will be like, in the 30's all weekend /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif and I have to paint the '75 top. The Blazer is my daily driver and is a '90 so this is a major project for next week! If any of you have done the convertible conversion before and have some tips, please speak up now!

    Search for yeild2me. Yes its misspelled for a reason, thats the only way he could get his plates IIRC. Rob has a decent write up on his site about lopping the top.

    I'm using the top off a '75... I had the top off of my '90 last year & it just isn't very satisfying. I've been longing for a full convertible and so I'll make it happen! Leaks you say, huh? Bring it awn! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
