Leave it out in the sun for a while. It will help to loosen it up

x2 and it has always helped me if the temp is above 70. Do not force the zippers and take your time. Do not know what brand of top you have but there are several instructional video on you tube.

Better to do it on a sunny day and only needs to b in the sun about 20 minutes before its nice and soft. If you have upper door skins going to need a shoe horn to get them on. But all in all pretty easy
