I posted a question a while back in reference to one of the zippers on my Bestop softop not zipping together.I could pull the tab down but the zipper would seperate instead of closing.
One of my friends on this board told of a place he took a zipper to be repaired and they just got a pair of pliers and squeezed the back of the tab together a little.
I did that today and by-golly IT WORKED! I couldn't find any silicone spray so I lubed it with WD-40 afterward. So Thanks to the one that helped and I hope this tip helps someone else.
I had a zipper rip at the stitching on my rear window. I took it to a marine upholstery shop, he stitched it up in a few minutes and didn't charge me a dime. Might of had something to do with the red 72 fj40 sitting out front (owners) :D
;) You're most welcome! It's a cheap fix that usually works :cheers:
