Well, thats better than replacing the vinyl.
Check with MPS Auto Salvage and see if they have a motor for the top. If you take the truck panels out of the car, the motor is super easy to access.
Check the condition of the top closed too. A lot of times the edges where it rubs going up and down will be worn or cracked. Keep that $2000.00 replacement vinyl in the back of your head for price negotiation if it looks like it will need replacing.
