Hardtop Liftgate seal leak

How is the liftgate panel and seal supposed to look. Obviously not like this. It’s leaks terribly all across the top. Any adjustments I can make?

That look like mine. If you are going to replace it, look for fairchild industries products.

I just replaced the seal this past weekend. Didn’t make much difference, water still poured in

hmmm. Those are not oem hinges. Do you think maybe they are not the correct angle and making more of a gap?

Grasping at straws here as there is not much adjustment for this issue.

Mine also leaks with a factory liftgate and hinges. Not sure what to do about it.

They are definitely not the OEM hinges. They were replaced by the PO. Not really sure what they should look like
