Reassembling a Roll Top Desk?

How do I re-insert the rolltop insert back into my desk after I refinished it? I can't get it started in the grooves and it will not fit back again. I need to slide the rolltop back where it is suppose to go.

Biggest problem I found when re-inserting roll-top: Much of the retaining fabric had perished and the individual slats could slide against each other far too easily. Two people gently guiding did the trick for me.

But that doesn't really count as what we'd call a 'proper job', more a 'bodge'. But it works now!
