How long does it take to install a new soft top?

I recently got my new sailcloth top and haven't got around to installing it yet. I did however went ahead and put the new upper door skins on my window frames, but I haven't removed my old top yet or anything. My free time is very limited nowadays with school and work so I was just curious as to how long it takes to remove the old top and install the new one? Also is it easy to do or a PITA? I know the upper door skins were a huge PITA to stretch onto the frames but I eventually got them. I am curious if it's a job that I could tackle some evening or is it more of a weekend project? Any advice is appreciated. Thanks

It doesnt take long to physically put it on, but you are probably going to want to leave it in the sun for a while so its not so hard to get everything into place.
