When I separated my top mine ripped. I am not surprised to see Toyota's price above $300 for that piece. Some folks on MUD have been saying that the bottom seal for a garage door works well, but I can't see how that would be possible with the curves you have to deal with.
I would take the top apart though, rust can form under the fiberglass cap.
