Shop to fix rear window in Bay Area

Hello,

My rear window (plastic) has a small area where the stitching has come undone (2 inches or so), and therefore there is an open gap. The plastic and the top has not been damaged at all.

Can anyone recommend a reputable shop with experience in the Bay Area that could do this type of work ? (hopefully without having to remove the top). I'm in the Peninsula area.

Alternatively, is this something that I could do myself ?

thanks
mcfly

Don't try it yourself. Go to Jeda Generations in San Jose and talk to Jack. He's the best and it costs $550. 408-213-2263

you'll actually save yourself some money by just buying the whole top and transferring over.. i've seen complete tops for 3-400 and they are relatively easy to remove and replace.. if yours has a glass top then i'd just repair it, if its plastic window i'd just go the replace the whole top way...

I personally disagree with you. I've seen quite a few fitment issues with cheap aftermarket tops. It's also a pain in the butt to replace them. Jeda Generations can replace the top and have it look perfect and I believe they charge around $1500 or so installed.

I just got a new top (with glass window) installed at Mountain View Interiors and they did a very nice job for a very reasonable price.
They can also fix your rear window
I'd say give them a call
