Quiet a Noisy Half Top

Yep, you read that title right...I'm trying to figure out ways to at least REDUCE the noise from my half top...

Normally if I am going to put the top down, I remove the top from the windshield channel, and roll it back under the roll bar and leave the windjammer in place. The problem for me is that on cold rainy days like today, when I put the top up, the thing is noisier than ever. I can feel air coming through the windshield channel, and it eventually blows the flaps on the doors up. at that point, I might as well fold it back...

I was thinking about running a bead of silicone on the windshield channel to see if I can't seal it up a little more, as well as running a bead on the plastic lip of the top. Has anyone tried this?

Also, just a thought, I was thinking about fabbing a fiberglass shock-corded pole to bow across the inside of the cab to take up some of the slack in the top, and reduce the flapping...

am I wasting my time?
