Of course, the inevitable has occurred. I was installing my soft top for the winter and I got the whole thing on without a problem. Then I installed the windows... the rear one was a real pain. I had one side zipped and had to stretch in order to get the other side to line up. As I was zipping it ripped a 3 or 4 inch line down the seam of the fabric! Son of a... !

So now what? Do I have to take the whole damn thing off again? And who do I take it to in order to sew it back up? It's a Bestop by the way.

I had a small tear from a parking garage that was to short. If you look in the yelow pages under auto seat covers, tops and upholstery most of those guys can patch holes, tears etc.. My guy put a patch on the inside and from the outside you can barely tell. I think it cost about $100..
