Many types of convertible soft top damage can be repaired, either at home or by a professional upholstery repair shop. Typically the size and type of damage dictate whether it is more cost effective to repair or replace the convertible top.
Straight-line cuts or tears that are less than 12 inches in length are generally easy repairs, made by sewing or gluing the damage back together. Canvas patch kits and vinyl repair kits are available for covering larger areas or jagged tears in a soft top. The type of material used in the roof's construction dictates the type of kit needed.
