I did not replace it. I removed all of the tape and used Convertible top cleaner/Black. That did an outstanding job on renewing the black, and removing the discoloration of the tape that the former owner used.
I did the following until I get a new top: After a total cleaning, I made sure that the rip was fully filled with waterproof material so it would look even with the rest of the top. And then I used Flex Seal black spray over 1 piece of black gorilla tape that covered the 20" rip. It actually looks pretty good! I will replace the top eventually, but I really want to get it painted first
