Repairs for a soft top

Unfortunately my jeep was broken into last night. They cut a piece out of the side window.. I was wondering if it is possible to repair it and if so how. Also if I can't repair it is it possible to buy just a new window instead of a whole new top.

If it's got zip out windows, just buy a new window. If not, take it to an auto upholsterer and see what they say.

You will liekly need to replace the whole window section, if the f*cks cut the plastic (see-thru) part. But you don't need a whole new top as stated. However in the meantime, find some quality 100% clear packing tape. I have done this before as a stop gap measure, and while not pretty, it is fairly effective, not as noticable as you might think, and lastly real cheap. If you try this, clean the entire area around the sliced section with rubbing alcohol, and use tape on both the inside and outside.
