    Hello. Just wondered where is a good place to buy replacement roof weatherstripping for the roof? I know the previous owner took it off in the summer, and it leaks. Thanks.

    Those seals aren't cheap. Before you spring for a set, take off the top and look to see if they're really damaged. A lot of times the leaks are caused by dirt, grass, etc. that gets trapped between the seal and the body when putting the top back on, creating a path for water to follow. If the seals look OK, clean them well and treat them with a silicone weatherstrip conditioner. Then wash and wax the body where the seals will contact it. Then carefully sit the top in place and bolt it down, using all the bolts. This will often fix the leaks.
