I don't know of any places that sell patches, but call bestop, perhaps they can help or maybe send you a few sample pieces that would work.

I would hunt them down and kill 'em for sure if they did that to my OEM Whitco top.

sorry about that,
they ate a 2in dia hole in my rear seat.

had to put some black tape over it before my little 5 year old grand daughter would set in the seat, she was afraid of the mice.

would be best is you could get a patch on both sides and have them sewed in place..

GeoffatBestop is a forum member here, he might see this thread and have something for you.

I tried calling them a while back to get those little rectangular nuts that fit up under the bed overhang, and they sent me 16 of them no charge.

I had the same problem when I went to put on my top last fall. I ended up cutting some patches out of old denim jeans, then coating the whole patch with a thin layer of RTV. No leaks all winter.

does your bestop have some "extra' fabric you could scavenge from around the internal door surrounds without changing the integrity? (mine did)

also, ANY boat top or auto upholstery place is sure to have a few scraps of fabric or top trimmings which will work. tell'm it's for your kids pine wood derby project

As mentioned above, try to PM him at: http://jeepspace.jeepforum.com/GeoffatBestop

I see that he hasn't been on JF for 3 weeks, but a PM should send him an e-mail notification.

Also, sometimes a phone call will get more results than an e-mail. It is too easy for a lot of people to simply delete an e-mail....jus' sayin'!

Good luck!
