Post Repair/replace Vinyl top?

Hey, I'm new here.

I have a 1986 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham for my daily driver. Not a lot of power, but loads of style (IMO). We've had hail in Albuquerque a couple times over the summer, and that has put small tears in the vinyl top of the car. I like the way that the car looks with a vinyl top, so I'd like to replace or repair the thing.

The cracks/tears in the top are about 3/4" long, and seem to only happen where the hailstones hit the roof. Any tips on repair? Failing repair, are there good places to buy a new vinyl top? I'm not afraid of body work, or of mechanical work.
