    Repair patch on inside of soft top. Adhesive

    I am trying to find a really good adhesive that will hold up to the abuse of being on the soft top. So basically heat, cold and friction. Anybody have any suggestions? I have read about Rhino Glue, Gorilla Glue, 3M Adhesive but wanted to see if anybody had any other suggestions. The patches would be on high wear areas. There is no holes and no leaking but just as a preventative.

    I've never had an issue with gorilla glue+ canvas patch. Just make sure it fully cures, plus some extra time, before you move it. Pre-stretching the canvas patch a bit will also keep it from pulling away as much.
