Convertible top smells

I recently got a replacement top for a Honda S2000 convertible. It smelled like skunk from the moment I picked it up. What is that and can I get rid of it.

Probably a chemical smell from dyes and plastics.
Just let it air out for a few days before installing.

You should be asking the convertible top installer, not us.
