Is the zip ripped or is the lock clip pulled off the end. If the lock is pulled off the end it can be carefully rethreaded. Once you have the zip back together you can burn two small holes in each piece of the zip and put a small cable tie through the holes to stop the zip lock pulling of the end again.

If the zip itself is broken you may be able to get a sail maker to mend it.

we eventually got zip back on ok after gently closeing the head with pliers and removeing end staple zipped up great !
first time hood swap removed knackered tan top and replaced with black vinly top from my s spec as I have h/top
althouth it was tight managed to close front brackets and adjust accordingly quite pleased he now has good roof and
next swop should be a doddle. took about 1 hour to fit adjust after takeing 1 to 2 hours to remove mine learning curve etc !!
rain rail was main worrie but went in no problem easier to see how it works when off all in all good day
