Sal,

Let's start with the obvious areas:

Airconditioner:
4 ceiling bolts can be loose; seal may not be compressed enough to prevent leaks.

4 Clearance lights on front cap:
These are notorious points of leakage and should be sealed with 50 year clear silicone applied under base and also between lense and light but don't forget to coat the retaining screw located at top of lense.

Hope this helps; it helped me,

Next: Seal outside windshield with a bead of silicone (all the way around and lift seal between glass and rubber to apply.)
Ventury action can suck water in spots that are open but very small.

You can take soapy water in a spray bottle and spray it on the seal on the inside have someone on the outside with a air nozzle have them spray between the body and seal if there is a leak bubbles will show
