    Torx to remove top on a \'89 Blazer

    Summer's comin', thinking of tossing the top. Where can one pick up the funky Torx driver that is used to remove the top? regular one won't work 'cause there is center post coming up in the middle of the bolt.

    Go to your local auto parts store and ask for a taper proof torx head bit. Not sure which size it is though.

    I'll second that. Save your money and take them out with a pair of lock pliers, buy some hex bolts and be done with it. Don't forget to check your rear seat belts. I had to take them out on my 90.
