PVC 110 top

Just converted my 110 from hard to soft... I was installing the top and I can't seem to get it to fit right. From wat it looks like ... It won't stretch into place...

Does anyone have any ideas and/ or advice? I have removed and refitted it three times to no avail!!!!

Get a space heater and put in the garage over night! Get it nice and hot! It should stretch enough to fit! Hopefully that helps

Zip all the windows in (when the top is off the truck) and then slide it over the cage. Attach what you can (I usually opt for the belt rail over the windshield first. Then get the truck in the sun, turn the heat on, use the space heater like brewie said etc. After about an hour of mega heat put on some gloves and stretch it into place. It'll take some elbow grease but this is the tactic that works.
