Default '89 K5 top never removed stuck

Hey, y'all. I have an '89 K5 with one previous owner. Garage kept, weekend driven. I was going to take the top off, but it is stuck tighter than a prom night virgin. I laid on my back and tried to move it near the tailgate with my legs over the guide pins, I tried to stand and lift it with my back, and nothing. I used a spatula to make sure there was give between the seals and the top and had full clearance. Any suggestions? I don't want to break the fiberglass by putting too much strain, but I would love to go for a topless ride with my family. Thanks.

It's been a while since I've taken one off, but I seem to remember that there were two bolts that went in from the bottom. Did you remove those?

Where in the bottom? I used to have a '78 and after taking all the bolts out of the bed frame and where it butts up to the cab roof, it was good to go.

I think they're all the way in back, hidden behind the interior panel, or something like that. My Blazer hasn't had a top on it for years, so I don't remember exactly. Sorry.

I finally found 'em. Thanks!
