Definitely gets easier.
I struggled the first few times but now can put it on/take it off in 10 minutes and that's taking my time - I don't rush anything.
As the others said, it's much easier when it's warmer.
The order you do everything is also critical.
I always take my softtop off completely so the first thing I do is
- Reattach the bows to the rollbar brackets.
- Unfold the top up and sit the catches in the slots in the windshield frame - Do not clamp these down at this point
- Attach sail panels at the rear corners of the tub
-Now you can clamp down the catches on the windshield frame.
- Zip in side windows
-Zip in rear window
-Clip 'drip retainer rails' into the door surrounds.
