Prevent ceiling damage around roof vents

Here is what I did in my 1989 toyota seabreeze to prevent ceiling damage around roof vents and A/C unit. I am not sure how newer rigs are made, but the openings cut in my Yoda's roof were left raw wood...any water that leaked in around vents or A/C seeped into the raw edge of the luan ceiling panals. By sealing up the raw wood with 3 coats of paint and drilling weep holes in the corners of vent trims, any leakage will drip out the weep holes and be spotted immeadiately. Some pics.

Seems to me the best solution is to seal the outside properly so that no water ever leaks in. Nice job, though.
