take it to an upholstery shop they may be able to reseal it for you, most body shops may be able to also, this keeps you from getting adhesive on that expensive top!

The vinyl top can be cleaned with vinyl top cleaner usually find at auto parts stores and a very soft brush if really dirty, never use a detergent it will stain the top!

3M makes a super weatherstrip adhesive. It comes in a red and white tube and should sell for around ten dollars at any autoparts store like advance auto, Autozone,Pepboys, etc. It's a black rubbery adhesive and a little bit goes a long way. Just smooth some on with your finger,(wear rubber gloves because it's hard to get off your fingers) let it start to setup for a couple minutes then stick your rubber piece back where it supposed to be. Don't put the top down for a couple days and you should be good to go. More than likely a shop would charge you a small fortune for that kind of repair and probably have you car for a few days. Fix it yourself and save some time and $$$. Good Luck, Kenny/MrBlueOval
