Default My latest project.

I put this in the hunting forum because I use this Blazer for hunting, shooting, and off road. If it needs to be moved that is fine.

I made this soft top for my K-5 Blazer. I spent about $300 on it. I made all the frame work. I bolts on using that same bolt holes as the hard top. I did not alter the the truck itself in any way. All the snaps are in the steel frame instead of the truck. It also unsnaps and drops down on the tailgate. Really nice being able to have the top up or down in a couple of minutes. The hard top is very heavy. It takes 2 or 3 people to get it off or on. I put it on and drove 2 blocks. Someone pulled up next to me and asked me to make them one. I said no it was too much work. I also used a $28 can of Rustoleum to shoot a coat of paint on the truck while I was it it. Makes for a great shooting and hunting truck. It will go just about anywhere.

Thanks. The funny part was when I painted it. I scuffed and masked it. Then it started getting windy. My wife said I should paint it in the gargage. I didnt want to. She said there would be dust all over it if I didn't. So I agreed. I got one side and the hood done. She came out and said dinner was ready. I went in for dinner. After dinner I came out to finish it. But there were little kitty paw prints all over the hood! I had to start all over the next day. It is a good thing she loves that cat. LOL!
