Re: Softop installation no Holes

Is it fair to say the first Header goes out to the first person on the list ?

These parts will be shipped with out holes and no snaps installed because there are differences between one Blazer to the next with respect to the softopper snaps. Also the main mount holes are easy to put in while clammed into place .Each one will be tested on My Blazer for fit and I will have a return policy but still need to work that out until further notice the Headers will be $260.00 plus actual shipping cost There are two nearly ready to be shipped. I suspect early next week

Re: Softop installation no Holes

I'm would like to purchase too. Funny I've been struggling with drilling holes for a soft top. Hopefully this is the answer! LMK! Thanks

Re: Softop installation no Holes

The only issue i have with my soft top is the rain that comes in by the vent widow does this mold take care of that gap.

Re: Softop installation no Holes

First off I don't want to start a frenzy cause the fibre glass guy leaves me with impression he's not crazy about doing the product so intensely .Second I had to do some work on the part even he produced so things will gradually get going but I still might find pretty quickly that I still need another fibre glass guy.
As I said I have two pieces for sale now and I need to make some decisions on whether to keep going with present guy or keep looking .Also whoever is the lucky Persons to purchase the first two will have to be the testament of the product . No sense in rushing out ten if there going to get bad reviews !
Now I heard another issue might be shipping due to not being original part to The Blazer This is becoming a real headache for me sometimes because I barely have the time to prepare and repair. Another issue is where do I start on the list.? The first entry ,or the first commenting on they will take one .I just really don't want to anger anyone and want to do it fairly without getting into trouble over it.
Regards Rob

Re: Softop installation no Holes

No worries mate! Ur doing it the right way. I will be patient. Maybe a solution to sell a few you have is when u have a couple to sell start a new thread in the for sale side and go from there. I would like to think most everybody understands this isn't the easiest thing to do and relize your trying your best to make a quality product and be fair. If someone does get upset don't let it bother you. keep up the good work. .....hakunah matada=no worries.

No worries here, just do the best that you can do. I believe by the time it gets to me, most of the kinks will be worked out!

Re: Softop installation no Holes

We all just appreciate the effort to share your creation with us all. Do the best you can and we will be patient. It's not like we would have one anyway without your efforts and I think we all agree that it's best to go through the process to make sure it's right from the start. That said, I'm looking forward to trying this thing out!

Re: Softop installation no Holes

Right on, I'm happy to wait until you are satisfied. If you need a guinea pig to test it out just send me a PM, although shipping to the East Coast might be a pain in the rear.

Thank you for all the great progress you've made so far!

Re: Softop installation no Holes

Hi Rob,

It's me Ray, I finally purchased the 1972 GMC Jimmy 4x4 with 13,100 miles yesterday. Bringing it home tomorrow. Ordered a new steel gas tank, comes with new straps and sending unit $250, won't see for a few weeks. Have to get a new battery, and go through the entire drivetrain, change all fluids.
I would like to come over and check out the soft top fiberglass piece you came up with, will need one for the Jimmy.

Talk to you soon
Just trying to post a few pictures of the Jimmy, it's clean.
