okay the zipper on my upper door windows are starting to skip some teeth and and I have a huge gap in areas now. How can I fix that or do I need to go to an upholstery shop and have them fix it.

Hello Keith

Dont know where you live, but a Boat place that does canvas tops is your best bet..They can even change the Scratched up windows..

Was going to have a custom top made when I had my bronco..

Good Luck

Keith:

The above is a good place to go, I've gone to a shoe repair store and the guy brought out a tool that recrimps the slide, and it worked like new. I did this w/ all the zippers, until they just got chewed up. Can you say BESTOP !

Well I found an easier method, and that was to have part of your top rip off during a rain & wind storm causing you to replace the whole thing. I found that this method works best for the zippers. It's amazing being able to see out of those damn side and rear window(s). Thanks for the advice, I still have my soft upper doors and plan on getting htose fixed soon.

Isn't it amazing how much more clearly you can see? You don't even need to waste any time or money trying to clean the windows anymore. Finger
