    What type of molding is on the front glass a lot will have a hard surround and other came out with a rubber syle that is wider. "IF" it has the wider rubber style you could roll it back and shot caulk in the channel for a temp fix. What on the roof leaks (sunroof)?

    I think it leaks through the windshield and down into the roof area and leaks out the leather cieling... was custom. last guy who owned it did it. its sweet.

    ...always drips rite on my knees!

    Go out get some powder laundry detergent look for one that states some like brightens whites mix it up real good with some water like in a 5 gal. bucket. Next you need a black light. Pour the mix all over the window seal and the roof. The laundry detergent will make the water glow when the black light hits it, quick and easy way to track a water leak.

    good tip once finished get yourself a caulk gun and some caulk and find somebody who can do a clean job with it then color it in with a permanent marker to conceal it worked on my old prelude sunroof

    Oh jesus... lol. you wanna come build a double car garage in my backyard? I will LET you! One for the boat, one for the blazer. LOL. I had to take my truck trailer up to grandmas house because the city is gonna have a fit about it being in the street (or at least the boss says).... Im gonna park the boat in the backyard up against the house durring winter covered up. The city code says it has to be on concret or gravel. But if I cover it up and all, Im not sure anyone will even know what it is. lol.
