You must have used some form of caulking to seal it. None of them work. What needs to be done is have the panels in front in place, then the side panels, then a rear panel that the upper ones land on.
All other methods will fail. Some sooner than others.

Cruise my photo albums here, http://www.rooferscoffeeshop.com/pho..._list.asp?u=30 and on my site. (In my sig.) Pay attention to the details in the Metal Details album. Some of the other albums have other relevant details too.
