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

That is funny: The same issue as yours was the welcome excuse for me to order a new top with glass rear window
I'll have it done next week at Mountain View Auto Interiors
Bob quoted me $450 for a new plastic window (labor & material) but I decided to go the whole nine yards.
I can tell you next week how it went
