You will get lots of ideas and here's mine, I've had the top and "T" tops off nUmerous times and NO LEAK
Before you set the top on (with friend), check all the GASKET surfaces and/or vacuum them to get rid of debris, then set the main top in place and finger start ALL torx screws--you may have to jostle it a couple times, to get all screws lined up then (atleast I do) do a cross tighening of the TUB screws, till their all snug, then tighen the overhead screws, just FIRM
Now, for the "T" tops, put the passenger side on and align the outside "PIN" (just over the door front), jostle it to settle in place, then just START the rear thumbscrew, put the drivers side on the same method, now latch the front windshield latch's and systematically work back thru the latch's, untill the final rear thumbscrews---JUST FINGER TIGHTEN BOTH, very light-light-light
Now, you may say, What a bunch of BS,, thats OK, but how many times have you read of hardtop leaks ???
Mine doesn't, in downpours or freeway travel in the snow/rain
If you're interested, I have a not so popular system of hoisting and storing the top, in the garage
Good luck--DON'T LET EVEN A CORNER STRIKE THE BODY/CONCRETE
I don't know what you'll do with the rear wiper hookup, that was the 2nd thing I took off when I got my Rubi home
