Question Wanted: Opinions on this leak

First off, I apologize for the crappy cell phone vid.

Where do yall think this is coming from? I suspect it's leaking at the windshield header.

Drip, damn you, drip video by anonpicdump - Photobucket

I've had a small leak on the drivers side. I lowered the windshield last weekend to check out the cowl seal and it basically looked ok. I did remove the header and check the bulb seal. When I put it back, I tightened it down more than it was to begin with. Now, I have a nice big drip

What do you think, did I overtighten the header and deform the bulb seal causing it to leak? It's obviously something I did, it didn't leak at all on the passenger side before. I guess "if it ain't broke, fix it until it is" is in full effect

I know. It's a slow drizzle, but it's the first real rain we've had in ages. I think I only had to mow my lawn maybe 4 times this summer.
