Convertible top repair bottom became untucked.

I tried searching to see what others have done to fix this, but had a hard time coming up with search terms. The top became untucked from from, What is the best was to get this back in place. Do I use an adhesive?

Double sided 3m tape. Separate all of the bottom, clean it well with acetone, and redo the entire bottom edge.

I used 3M spray adhesive....spray onto paper plate and apply with foam brush. Two years and still holding.

Thanks guys. Advise was helpful, I just called a top shop and they want $65. How long do you think this will take if I do it myself?

Using 3m it took me about 5 minutes to apply and about 10 min to set up enough to let it finish on its own. I opened the top enough to take the tension off the area.
