Yup. No leaks. The high density weather strip did the trick. I think the most important part of the installation was remembering to tighten the bolts starting from the middle toward the outside. I was able to repair the broken sealing frame with some aluminum tape. This might be a stupid question, but did you put the butyl tape on both sides of the sealing frame? I hope I didn't just insult you but I had to ask. If your leak is down by battery compartment, it is more than likely your brake lights leaking. I had to fix those too (pictured). Poor design causes the fixture to heat up and crack in the worst spot. Right were all of the water coming off of the hood seem flows across. Good luck with your repair.
