    This thing is stuck, anybody got any advice for some kind of solution I could soak it in or something? Thanks

    When I got my rip curl 3/2 out of the garage for the first time last month, the chest zip was locked up hard. WD 40 sprayed on for about an hour, and it loosened up and moved.

    If it's really crusted solid, try vinegar. Just soak a paper towel in it, and let it sit on the zipper for several minutes. It should work free. Just try not to get any on your suite.
