Trektop gaps and wind noise

Yesterday I put on my trektop. This is NOT the NX but the standard trektop. So far i'm not super wild about it. But it is necessary I have some kinda fastback soft top as I haul some gear on top of a tuffy security deck. Removing the rear window lets me strap down the gear on the deck perfectly. With the standard softtop it wouldn't fit.

I knew that it was gonna be a tight fit so I let the top bake in the sun for awhile. It actually went on fairly easily. Though the rear right corner of the door surround does not line up with the top very well. On the left side it is in front of the flap so the flap folds down nicely into the corner. On the right the surround is right at the flap so it kinda sticks through the slit where the flap is leaving a gap. Anyone have any thoughts?

Next is the headbar, lots of wind noise through here and visual holes into the cabin at each corner. I read to get the headbar mounted as far forward as possible. But how does that work? The knobs have metal bases that line up with the back of the footman loops. There really is no way to clamp the headbar farther forward, it kinda lines up the same each time. Then at the corners the little flaps. They were had pinky sized gaps straight into the cabin when I first put it on. I read online that it can help to fold them back under themselves and that seemed to help a bit, but still not a great design for a corner. Anyone else with a standard trektop have ideas for reducing the wind noise from this?
