Soft top repair

Adhesives are temporary fixes...I got six months before things got worse. Here's the cure: My local auto custom trim/upholstery shop does soft top work. I took it to him and six hours later it looks like new and stronger than new since original seam was only glued. He took off the soft top and sewed it across the entire width of the top seam (above the rear window. It looks perfect like the factory did it. He used the same color braided nylon (outdoor) stitching. He also stitched the two frequent problem areas on both sides of the back window. He does work for dealers too, trade-ins, off-lease, insurance, etc. It was a piece of cake for him since he has the experience and one big strong sewing machine!
