360 spider top in winter

As some of you know I am a new proud owner of a 360 spider. Unfortunately we have snow and salt on the roads so no driving for a while. My question is about the top when you are not driving for a while. Any recommendations about how often I should operate the top while it is stored to keep the parts, pumps etc. moving.
Thanks.
Kevin.

Suggest you PM Harsh. He has a 360 Spider and should be able to provide insights on the roof (although his is almost never up).

Make sure to not keep the top off for too long in your garage (more than a week). It can wrinkle the plastic rear window if engine is very hot and you can get problems getting the top up again.
In case your top doesnt wanna get up anymore after you've parked it with the top down, you should make it wet by spraying some water on it (tip from Ferrari dealership). I've had this happen once to my 360 and now my top is fine again

Thanks for the tips. Hope to never use them but always very helpful to know.
