I took a pair of small fabric scissors and tidied some of the seams when I got home, but I wasn't expecting perfection for a £300 job. To be honest, at £300 you can treat the top as a consumable!

Replacement roof has remedied the small leaks I was experiencing into the boot, however one of those was merely masking another leak from the boot deck! I suspect it's the top of the rear quarter, possibly where that small plastic cover slides into the gap between the boot and the outer wing. (the rear quarter has been replaced in the past). Injected some sealant for the moment to see if this recitifies it. Almost impossible to track it down internally as the water drips down into the area above the inner arch and boot structure so is basically hidden from anything but a boroscope!
It's only taken 5 years, but finally found the little bastard.

The small plastic trim panels that live on the rear deck are held in with screws. Look what happens when you re-use them and don't install the gasket correctly;

The car had a new rear quarter put on many years ago, seems they managed to screw that up too!

This little bugger has been responsible for a new boot floor, so very happy I've found it. Gunked it for the moment, but I'll replace it with a new part.

Had my new roof fitted today! As has been said before (many times), great job for the money, a few bits to tidy up, trim etc, but for £300 it's a cracking job! Managed to get away before too much talk of "the Poles" and "people not from here".

Also worth letting you all know that he told me he's probably going to stop doing s2000 after Xmas, apparently we're a "too fussy bunch" and just complain and expect the earth etc etc. He may have a point, after reading this thread, but still, get your tops in quick guys!!
