YJ Hard Top Leaking Need Ideas

Hello All. I just purchased a 92 YJ and after last night snow storm....I find that the hard top is dripping water into the cab. Naturally, the seller never mentioned this issue to me! Seems to dripping from multiple spots. Can I paint the top with an elastomeric paint ( roof paint) or perhaps Linex, Rhino Liner, etc. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who has dealt with this problem. Thank You!

If your hardtop itself is leaking from holes, that's a whole other problem. Try a cheap roll of weather stripping from home depot first, one 15' roll( like $6) should take care of any leaks between the hardtop and body.

It could be condensation thats on the roof and dripping. This can be caused my an unsealed hard top. as said above, I bought weather stirpping from home depot and it fixd all my problems with water and air leaks.
