Soft Top Torn

My soft top has torn by one of the zippers of the back window. Does anyone know if this can be repaired? I'm trying to save from having to buy a new top..... THanks for the help.

Most top shops (convertable top shops) can re-sew the zipper for a few bucks or ad a patch etc. I had an old top repaired about 8 times before finally selling the Jeep.
Good Luck

Best thing to do is go and buy some very heavy thread at a material store and get some think needles. It's pretty easy. Just use the same holes. My wife pulled the top off and sat down one night while we watched a movie and replaced just about all the old thread on one side on the top. The thread we used was covered in wax.
