If that is something you might think about doing, let me know as I can give you some hints on the process. Good luck!
Please share more info as I am in need of re-stitching the zipper before replacing window. I actually got mine to clear up to the point of saying good enough for now but the dang stitching releasing keeps the car in the garage even on cloudy days.
