  • soft-top window repairs

    Ok, I am not happy.

    About 2 weeks ago some prick decided he wanted the stereo and some camping gear out of my jeep. So the a-hole cut the passenger rear window out of the soft top (rather than simply un-zipping it).

    Long story short, I don't want to spend $250 on a new window that will hardly ever be on the jeep. I want to patch the piece that was cut. All that was cut was the clear plastic, the sailcloth was left intact. I want a permanent repair (no tape), that hopefully won't turn yellow with time. There has got to be a way to do this. Anyone have any ideas (besides waiting for Seapahn come out for a visit )?

          heh...yea. It was the first night in town too. I still had my kayak tied down to the top, my camping gear inside (some of which was stolen).....good thing I had the rack in the back. I had all the expensive stuff under that (tools, spare parts, etc.....).

          What really sucks about it is that with my deductable ($500), I will only get about $50 from the insurance co., since they are not covering anything except the window and the stereo. So for now I am running around with a big gaping hole in the dash, and the only music I hear is from the tires....(which is kinda cool in its own right...)....but I am guessing that I won't be liking that situation on long road trips.
