Soft Top Repair

I have a rip in my soft top (was there when I bought it) but it seems to be getting slightly bigger and was wondering what the best way is to go about this? Any suggestions?

Take it to a boat upholstery shop and they should be able to patch it. I have had mine fixed before with a tear in the same area and I believe it is from folding it up when putting the top down. I also had the rear window zipper replaced by the same place.

does anyone with the soft top have the issue of the top pulling back in the middle of the windshield so there is a slight gap, if so how did you fix? I'm currently using weather stripping along the top of the windshield so it stops water from leaking in but it still looks weird from the outside since its curled up in the middle. Also what about on of the arms that holds the solid plastic piece running along the windshield breaking, need new arm, and plastic piece was having difficulty finding on sites didn't know if the part was correct or not.

Hey man. No I haven't done it yet, because since then, I had the hard top on. Im putting the softy back on in a couple weeks, then I'm gonna find a place.

Sorry been MIA lately, did you end up getting yours fixed?
