That's the same kind of question you ask, when people ask about adding a bulkhead behind their front seats - several people tell them to just buy a pickup - I've done it in the past, myself. So what that it's been done, just because it might not be anything you'd do to your own vehicle, doesn't mean it's a bad idea for someone else
I, for one, am insterested in being kept posted about aikidoka's ideas and progress about it. Still being unclear about how to seal it at the cab, I'm thinking about ordering an LMC catalog, for the Blazers, and seeing if they sell any of the parts I'd need
My blazer's interior was 4" more narrow than my Bronco's interior. That was measuring across the headliner, to the trim, above the doors... I doubt a full soft top would fit. I'm not saying it won't, but I have my doubts
I bet I could get some helpful info from some early bronco peeps. Lots of people seem to fabricate soft tops to avoid removing and installing their hard top. If I could up with some good info I will pass it on.
