Weather stripping should go there if I understand what you're asking?

No i bought all the weather stripping which i thought was the problem of the leak but the problem is by that strip.the roof i think has to be glued or something to that strip of metal. If someone has info on this please let me know. Its my first ttop stang.

I agree with almost stock it should be some weatherstrip.if you silicone it when you take the tops out it will pull off the silicone.maybe some weatherstrip on the actual tops and inside the frame would help.or maybe roof is pushed in a little?

In most cases, they use a weatherstrip adhesive/sealant. It should be pretty cheap butane sure u have it in place well if u use it, it will not release after you apply it.

Ok thanks. Yeah the roof is pushed in and thats where it leaks in. By the aluminum strip and the roof. Just wanted to know what people put there so it can stop leaking. I looked up the weatherstrip adhesive. Ima try that and see what happens. I have new weatherstrip too.
