    Zippers on Vinyl Cover Disintegrating

    I noticed it happening this last season. It appears that the white, plastic zipper that holds the vinyl piece onto the convertible cockpit seat back is dissolving away. (kinda like what the Andromeda Strain did to rubber). I've never used this zipper to remove the cover as all of the vinyl in the cockpit is still in great shape.

    Has anybody else experienced this and is there a quicker fix vs just replacing the zipper?

    Replace the zippers.
    The opaque zippers, the plastic is not UV proof.
