Looks better than my attempt, which is still in MDF form since I know nothing about working with metal. Since I started that project, I've had stainless steel M6 bolts tightened down through the factory foam cover... and no problems.
Thats what I figured but just to be safe I threw down some soft rubber washers between the roof and weather stripping and sealed it off with tfe paste... It withstood a direct hit from a pressure washer today!
