Isn't STC shut down???
The only place I know of is ORD. If you find any other places, I'd like to know too!
Fumes, this is the tech section.
Rob, you accidentally clicked on the garage, the link you want is the next one down.
Copy that over....
You can get tops for Blazers from Bestop They are usually selling new for $550 on Ebay
Harbor freight. They are blue and have holes in them for bungee cords.
just buy some bling marine-grade canvas and have the wife crank out a top for ya. I never liked the look of the Besttop.. and a Canback is like $1000 (wtf?!?!). bah! Simple top wouldn't be tooo hard to crank out.
Isn't CanBack back in business??? I heard they're doing orders now...
Oh never mind, I missed the last part of Jekbrown's sentence about CanBack being around $1000... my bad
yeah, last time I heard they were just over $1k. Like $1049 or something. Call me crazy, but that seems stupid high. Its a few pieces of bent tube and a piece of canvas... and it costs more than a stock Dana 60? yeah, ok!!!
$1,200 - Bronco, Blazer (includes side-panel windows) for the Can-back, and they don't do '69-'75 years and they don't fold all the way down.
STC numbers are "Temporarily disconnected" now, anyone know if they were actually bought and if they plan to re-open. Last I heard some guy in Texas? Anyone?
CAN-BACK stuff is nice . They used a lot of stainless hardware and SUNBRELLA canvas but priced waaayyy out of control. Ifound a nice lady in pomona ca. I skeched out an idea and she made it for a fraction of the cost CAN-BACK wanted .... find someone in your area who makes canvas awnings for store-fronts and draw up a design ,it's not too hard.
rumor has it STC got bought and will be moving to Texas and starting productions again. That was last I heard a month ago or so.
any close up pics of how yours turned out, I am thinking of tdoing the same thing
