New soft top mystery leaks

Finally brought my Jeep home from the shop a few weeks ago and left it outside during a weekend of showers. It leaked in a few places. The leaks up front are from the windshield gasket I'm sure, it's a bad design and let's water in. The other leaks that are a mystery for me are from my new Bestop replace a top. The water seams to be getting in right above the spreader bars on both sides. The water falls on the wheel tubs. I don't know how this is happening.the top seems to overlap and cover the zippers on both quarter windows, not sure how water is getting in. Nowhere else is the top leaking. Anyone else have this problem?

Never heard of that one but the best way is to hop inside and have someone on the outside with a hose imitating a rain shower. That's what clued me in on a few small ones I had up front. Hope this helps. GL
