If the rip is in the clear plastic window - you're screwed.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] I know from experiance. But, don't despare, Bestop will sell you the zip-out panel separately.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Please help!I ripped a borrowed soft top!

If its the clear plastic a trim/canvas shop may also be able to sew in another piece of clear plastic. I had it done on my CJ8 back window several years ago...don't remember what it cost, but its still there today. If its a Bestop zip out panel, I'd get a price on a new panel and then head to the canvas shop and compare prices and quality.

Why don't you try clear packaging tape on both sides? Btw, IMHO you should tell your stepbrother what happened. It's the right thing to do.

Re: Please help!I ripped a borrowed soft top!

called a few places today.. the first place said Oh..about 125!!!I was like DAMN!I told him I talked to a dealer and he said 90..he told me to "jump all over that".Well anyways then I was thinking after I hung up that...125 for repairing my window.Well sh#t I can get a replace a top for 299!Damn brand new!Not just a patch!And I'll get doors and everything.What a jackass!I then called another place and he said they could do it.He said they would probably have to sew another one in and it would cost like 50-55.!
