Steve, I couldn't find a seal from the vendors that wouldn't interfere with the upper windshield. I used a piece of rubber roofing on the upper windshield sides. It fit in the channels perfectly, and attached with a polyurethane sealant. (ex Loctite roof and flashing sealant). The upper hinge I also used the roofing material, if you use tape to hold it in place it works out easier. Now, basically the same for the lower fixed window. Its been almost 9 years now and no problems have occurred.
