how to repair ragtops? | Yahoo Answers

Upon noticing convertible top damage, the owner's initial reaction is sure to be one of annoyance or anger. Rather than succumbing to strong emotions, the best course of action is immediate observation. The seriousness of the cut tends to dictate whether or not it can be fixed at home. Many mechanics encourage replacement of the entire top if the tear is longer than 12 inches. Severe damage may warrant this reaction, but it is likely to be expensive. To save money, consider sewing up the tear yourself. While it is not impossible to fix a large rip, repairing small tears is much easier. The shape of the damage is also a determining factor. A jagged gash may be more difficult to patch than a straight cut. Additionally, the placement of the tear may influence your ability to make successful home repairs.
