    leaks around t -tops???

    Ok so i got the t/a out this moring and it started to become a light shower. then i noticed a couple od water drops coming inside from the pasanger window??? i got out and look could not see any drips. When I got back home i opend the pansger door and saw that there was water in the weather striping chanel and at the top cornrer of the t top close to the windshield like it eas pooling up there and running down inside. Anyone else have this same type of leak and if so is it bad weatherstripping or what

    If you lube your weather stripping once a year with wd40 or die electric grease (the grease works best) your weather stripping will last for alot longer. the lube makes the rubber swell up.

    the problem is dirt gets in the little chanels in the weather striping... find something gentle to clean out the inside andthen armor all them good...
