soft top D90

Hi all,

I was hoping i could get a little guidance for my ripped soft top. the issue that i am having is that its ripping along a few seems because it is so freakin tight when zipped up. im sure this is common when these tops get older, i was just curious if it is able to be sewn or do i just need suck it up and purchase a new top?

thank you
Seth

Yes it's common so there are tons of threads on it.

1: Leave top in sun or heat and it'll stretch more.
2: bring top to a boat or trim shop (Google) and have it repaired
3: order a Badger top and enjoy your newly repaired top for a year or so until your Badger top is ready.

I'm in Bergen County and can loan you an original top if needed while yours is getting repaired. They are tight as hell though and need to be in the sun to get on. Today would be perfect with this heat.

Or sell you my old one. I don't use it at all.

I bought a cloth top from Zack at Rovers North. I just liked the cloth look better. Very happy with the Rovers North top.

I dont know what a fair price is. Interesting trades considered.
