79 Trans Am T-top leak

Any ideas on what the best way to fix the leak on a 79 trans am's t-tops? I just got the car today, and for the $3K I paid for it, im not complaining one bit. I'd just like to get that fixed before we have a thunderstorm or something. Not sure if it's just seals or if maybe they're prone to other problems that would cause the leak. Thanks.

New seals. You figure...the old seals are 24 years old.

it had a recent restoration, and I figured the seals were most likely replaced, which im pretty sure they were, cause they look like they're in pretty good condition. I found the problem is the tabs, or, the hole for the tabs, one of them has been broken, and some idiot tried to jb weld them back into place. I found a $200 parts car with brand new t-tops though, so Ill just switch them out and be done with it.

Right on, I wish I could find a $200 parts car. Of course, I found a $343 79 firebird that I drove daily for 3 years.
