first time owner questions

Tried to find a thread to post this in with questions from other new owners. This is my first wrangler and I love it so far. Took the top off a couple weeks ago and was able to drive without top and doors for two weeks! Unfortunately I have to drive it tomorrow and the forecast is rain. I put the top up for the first time and want to make sure I didn't screw it up.

I don't remember what it looked like before I removed the top so I was hoping someone to look at this and tell me if it appears okay. I'm not going to lose my shit of a few leaks, but would like to avoid causing them.

Where the top meets the windshield and door there's a little hole. It has foam inside, but seemed a little odd. Also where it meets the windshield it's got a lot of rubber. Seems okay inside though.

Thanks for taking a look. Worst case I'll find out if it leaks tomorrow.

Soft tops take a little of of a hassle. I doubt it'll leak though. Only way to find out is to wait for it to rain. Or if ur unordinarily zealous, you could hit that questionable spot with ur hose
17 and ignorant

what I do if it's cooler outside before putting the top on is I will push the entire soft top forward (rear window and all), then I hook the front latches on and that gap you see will be closed fully. then I pull the soft top all the way down to the back and proceed to finish the rest up. hope that helps.
