Badger fitting

Hi, I bought a badger canvas half tonneau and bikini of a board member some time ago, which have been lying around for some time but other than that are as new. These are both extreamly tight and am struggling with the tonneau to get it into the belt rail and with the bikini, to reach the snaps on the b pillar. Any advise on easing this process?
Cheers, tim

Put them near a heater before trying to fit.

*not legal advice*

Lots of info on the site about fitting a snug soft top ( search "besttop"). Put the truck in a warm place. Run a space heater in the cab. Use a hair dryer. Put on some gloves and stretch it. It'll go on. Just be careful about yanking it and producing a tear.

Other option is loosen the supports between the windshield frame and the B pillar to shorten the distance.
