put a nice coat of the silicone grease on the two edges of the T-top close
to the pins and the corresponding rubber on the car side. I find that the
Kano Labs Parteze
silicone lube also does a good job of keeping the rubber from getting dried
out. Treat the rubber/gaskets with that and then apply the silicone grease
over it. Toyota does make a set of eccentric pin guides that will pull the
T-tops down against the gaskets snugger. I've got the part number around
somewhere, but I'm sure someone has it right at their fingertips.
