Default Snuglid owners what have you done to water proof yours?

So I'm curious what solutions other people have implemented?

I used some silicon weather seal along the edge between the vehicle and the lid.

I've also been working on a drip tray under the seam where it opens. I'll post pics later.

The problem areas left are the seal around the roll bar and believe it or not water drips in around the window to just outside the pass thru door.

I need to purchase the weather stripping at the hinge point of my snuglid and badly need to get a set of the gaskets that hug the roll bars. Anyone know where I can order them from. ? I am in canada, but realize I may need to shop south of the border.

Great thread I got the same problems here.
Water gets through the cover and it is a real pain.
I need the roll bar seals also.
I emailed snuglid a few times and never got a response.

I just got an e-mail from them. Go to their website check out the distributor locator, mid-america tops i think is about the only one you'll find.

I found the american site. But it does me little good. I cannot input a canadian postal code. Without understanding american zip code numbers, I was hoping someone knew of a) a canadian dealer or b) an american dealer not too far across the border.

the website lists one canadian dealer, all the way out in BC. I find that hard to believe considering the popularity of the product with other trucks. Gotta be old info never updated.
I know there are also other canadian baja owners on here.... so I was just hoping someone has already done this leg work to locate a dealer.

Didn't mean to seem lazy, just hit a road block and not the most computer savvy to begin with. apologies.

If no one from Canada chimes in, I'd suggest checking out the map...http://www.snugtop.com/dealers-canada.php and then zooming in to a nearby US city and then check out their zip code here... http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/citytown.jsp

I just ordered all new replacement seals for the snug lid from mid america truck tops - $130, it was the only place I could find that had them. If you call them I'm sure they will ship to Canada.
