Small hole in soft top, please help!

I am trying to sell my 2006 S2K and noticed a small hole in my soft top a month ago. It big enough to be noticed and I want to fix it without replacing or stitching it. What would you recommend? pics attached

You won't be able to hide it perfectly, but that should already be assumed, right?

Try this:
Put a piece of temporary duct tape over the hole, and make sure it's adhered tightly to the top surface. You might need to clean up the hole first, carefully trimming any damaged top material. Micro-shears will be perfect for this if you have them. $6 bucks at a local hobby shop. Nail clippers might work well too.

Then, use some black silicone or vinyl repair adhesive, and apply a small amount from the inside. Once cured (maybe a few hours or overnight), remove the tape, and trim any excess material with the clippers or shears, etc.

Good luck, let us know how it turns out.
