2008 Eclipse Spyder top half open

I have a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder 2008. I opened up my car top today after several months. I heard something crack. However, even though my car top was completely open my car would beep like it was not closed. I then tried to close the top but then part of the top wouldn't close. The windowswon't close either. Basically I would like to fix the whole operation but if I could just get the tail end of the top closed even manually so that the windows close and my car is secure I will be good. The first photo is the state my top is in right now and if I could get the bow to close I should be able to close the window and let me use the car.
