Windshield Cowl weather strip leak

I've noticed that water gets in under the seal between the windshield frame and the body(cowl). I replaced the seal and still had the problem. Then What I found was that the fiberglass body is sagging in the middle, so if you are to lay a straight edge across from one side to the other it has settled/sagged about 3/8" in the center. I'm thinking of ripping the dash all apart to install some type of reinforcement channel under the fiberglass. Has anyone else ran across a similar problem? If so what did you do to fix it?

Can't speak as to a fiberglass tub, but on my steel tub I threw a 3/4" door foam weather strip on the cowl side and haven't looked back since.
