Z3 Trunk leak

Hey All,

I have had a problem with rain getting in my trunk. I tried sealing the center brake light but water is still getting in. Any thoughts on where the water is coming from?

Thanks

Z3 Wood trim

I found out from an earlier post that the trim on my console is actually made of wood. Has anyone attempted to refinish it? If so, any tips?
