soft top issue

Today I discovered a hole in my soft top. The strange thing is that its a pin size hole right above the drivers compartment. It appears that the hole might have been there from the get go. Its not a slash ot a tear. anyone experince this? by the way. Its beginning to let in a slight amount of water too..grrrrr

I used a piece of old top and super glued a patch before. I'm sure you can get that material at a fabric store and try that.

If it is only a pin hole, try putting a tiny amount of clear silicone sealant on it from the inside. Press it in from the inside with a finger so that it fills to the outside. Let cure. Done. No more leak. And it will be super hard to see what you did.

If they don't take care of though, try the silicone sealant.
