Re: What did you do to your Blazer/Jimmy today?

Not sure if others have done this, but it's usually an all day job getting bolt holes to line up and to get everything to thread properly.
This year I cut down some bolts and essentially pre-installed studs into the top. Dropped the top and everything was lined up in one shot.
Major time saver. And I didn't have to worry near as much about cross-threading a bolt into an ancient captured nut.
Can you elaborate on how your system of cutting down bolts and pre-installing studs into the top works? I agree that trying line up the bolts with the capture nut without cross threading is challenging.

Is there is a more efficient way to reinstall the tops on these Blazers/Jimmies?

Thanks!
