+1, you're trying too hard
The soft top grabs and latches, the hard top just pushes against it to create pressure.
Remember, over compressed gaskets are a bad thing, don't try to swoosh it down. Contrary to what others might have you believe, it does great if you seat it gently and properly (especially the gasket between the two panels, near theback end it has a weird extra round piece, be sure to seat these gaskets properly......) it won't leak. Just like a compression plumbing fitting, kill it and it will leak likea sieve.
