When I had my hardtop on, one of the edges cut into the rollcage. I used some black roofing silicone (I think) to repair it. I got it at home depot. It came in one of those long tubes. It worked really well and you can't even see the damage.

Brian, can you share some pictures of the repair?

I'd really like to hear what you come up with Dmitry and see pictures of the results. If I beat you, I'll do the same. I'm sure something like the Black silicone would do it.

Mine have some pretty good tears in them, and the PO had glued them with some clear glue which held up for a while, but is now no longer holding. I took the rear cage off last week so have no excuse but to fix mine up a bit.

Now mine has a few chunks missing as well, and Id love to hear if anyone successfully filled those without it looking like poo.

Which brings up another thought, what is the best product to use on the cage padding to prevent it from drying out and deteriorating?

Sure, I'll snap a pic tonite. It's a very small area. I think that silicone stuff I used is permanent so it was a good choice.

Here are some pics of the repaired area. It was a horizontal crack/tear in the corner.

Here's also a pic of the stuff I used. I thought it was silicone but it's polyurethane.

The repair was done at least 4-5 years ago.

I like Aerospace 303. I use it on all rubber and plastic. Your local marine shop should carry some.
