softtop repair

Just got the top today that I bought off another member of this board. I repaired the zipper and driver's side rear rip. It was tough to put on, even with the heated garage. I have not drove it yet, but am very pleased. Here are a couple before and after shots of the repaired area. There were a couple spots that were hard to get my industrial machine to sew through... I had to sew in new plastic rails in one spot. I have some extra rail because you can only buy it in 5 foot section. So if anyone needs some rail material let me know.

I just used 1000 denier nylon, also called ballistic nylon. I just have some for a little business I do on the side. I did ask how much they charge for the material where I bought the rail piece and it was over $30.00 a yard.
