It's inevitable, they will leak at some point, but they sure look good with the T-tops off don't they.
My T-Tops were leaking when I bought the car. I've tried everything from weatherstrip replacement to silicone with no success. I'm giving up and will probably just silicone them permanently in place. I'd never buy another car with T-Tops. Probably why no new cars have them today, they were a bad idea.
Passenger side T-top leaks, or drainage route to bottom of door is leaking, water collects on passenger side rear floor.
