Use of soft top without frame?

Have had the top down with the nicer weather, now have a problem...the rain is coming back and my frame was bent in an accident and won't go back on right. Is it possible to use the top without the frame? I know it would look odd, but the new frame isn't in the current budget. Any thoughts?

Are you suggesting driving? There is no way it's going to stay secure. What's bent?

Not sure exactly. Coming back up, the front sits off to the right and has to get pulled over to latch down. The left side arm that attaches to the front is trying to sit outside the body.

All the body damage was to the right side. And the top was down when it rolled.

Actually got it back on, still isn't watertight, but better than nothing.
