targa top leaks

2000 torch red coupe and the Targa top is leaking. Unfortunately parking in the garage is next to impossible. Do they all leak? We are having rain for the next few days and I notice a drip next to the A pillar. Not alot but every few minutes a good size drop falls. Do I need to replace the seals or just clean the garage?

you might want to get it fixed. Unless you plan on pulling your garage around with you

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Mine only leaks when washing with high-pressure wash. Found that out early and then just changed the style by which I apply the pressure wash.

Maybe it should hold up to high pressure water when applied at the seals? Probably not, but maybe there's an upgrade mod for that!

I've been concerned about my top starting to eventually leak from numerous removals from the vette.
